Headspace

Each character I write has a very distinct feel to them. When I’m in their POV, I share their thoughts and feelings (and hope my readers do as well!). Some characters are active and energetic, like Rachel from The Summer Park Psychics series. Others are controlled and commanding, like Adam Smith from The Department of Homeworld Security. Being in Garrett’s head always felt like a hug, while Dante was straight-out like basking in a sun puddle.

It isn’t always easy to be in my characters’ heads. Almost all of them have experienced traumas. My books tend to focus on the periods of their lives when these issues come to the surface and the character has to decide whether to remain stuck or move forward. I like to focus on the positive, which is why I write Romances. It’s like I’m guiding the characters along on their paths toward happiness—and yes, as cheesey as it sounds, receiving guidance from them as well.
