It’s not Keith’s hairÂ which I thinkÂ isÂ girlyÂ with all thoseÂ layers.Â Â It’sÂ the soul patch, that is perfectlyÂ centered under his bottom lip, either he spends a long time in front of the mirror making it that way, or more than likely he pays out the ying yang to have someone else do it. I bet he putsÂ hair product on it too.Â Ugh! I like a man with faults.Â If he’s a real guy’s guy, he probably celebrates them.Â
One of the things I love about contemporary romances is that the author gets the chance to explore the normal relationship without fangs and claws ofÂ a paranormal taking over.Â Don’t get me wrong, I’ve never passed up aÂ good romance based onÂ Â genre, I love scifi, paranormal,Â and suspense.Â Like a lot of readers my age,Â I cut my romanceÂ teeth on those bigÂ bodice ripping historicals, and please don’t hold back the heat on my account, becauseÂ I think spice is very nice.Â Â Â
But sometimes, reading about guy who’d have to struggle to change a tire,Â can’t readÂ the heroine’s mind orÂ tellÂ how aroused she is by the noting the change in the temperature of her skin, is reallyÂ refreshing.Â It’s like being back in theÂ high school again. Your heart poundsÂ as you wonder if he’s going toÂ get up the nerve to kiss her. Will he figure out that she wants him as much as he wants her?Â The Oh my God! Will they ever do it? is as much a part of the suspense factor for meÂ as who-done-it.Â Â Â I love losing myself in the hero and heroine’s relationship, their locale, their very world for the time that I am between the pages of the book.Â That happens more for meÂ with the characters themselves than the bells and whistles.
My questions:Â Â
Do you have a favorite character? I know this is like having a favorite kid,Â and I promise not to let any of the othersÂ hear about it. Â
Is there a certain time of day you write?Â A certain thing you do to get into writing mode? Music etc?
How do you come up with new ideas? Do you plot your books out or just let them flow as the ideas come to you?
Many authors haveÂ someone in mind when they write their characters, do you haveÂ someone for yours-besides your friend’s hubby, I mean?
