Being Creative in Dark Times

on February 24, 2020

We live in dark times. Every time we turn on the news or get on social media, we are bombarded by some other horrendous news story or tragedy. While I was writing Echoes from the Veil, I struggled to find time and space to breathe. My mind became so cluttered with current events, that some… Read More

But I could… Read More

New Year, New You?

on January 28, 2020

by Dawn Altieri Do you make New Year’s Resolutions? To lose weight, to eat better, to stop smoking, to generally be a better person?

Dawn Altieri

Dawn Altieri

A lifelong resident of northern New Jersey, Dawn Altieri has been scribbling stories practically since birth. After reaching a milestone birthday (she won't say which one), she figured it was about time she took a shot at writing professionally. With an overactive imagination and a slightly twisted mind, she enjoys reading dark and dangerous tales almost as much as writing them. When she's not curled up on the sofa with her laptop, her latest story, a box of chocolates and a cup of tea (or a glass of wine, depending on the time of day), she can be found volunteering in the world of animal rescue. To keep a roof over her head, she works in the printing industry as a graphic production artist. She shares her home with her husband and daughter, and a menagerie of rescued fur-babies.

Witty Banter & the Strong, Silent Hero

on December 11, 2019

I have a confession to make. My husband can be hard to read when it comes to emotions. I mean, he’ll tell me if I ask. But in general, he tends to be a “keep it to myself” kind of guy. Now, luckily, he’s also super easy going. Very little bothers him. But when he… Read More

What Makes a Heroine ‘True To The Times’?

on October 23, 2019

What makes a character true to their time? Does he or she adhere to a certain moral code or strictly stated socially acceptable behaviors? And who deems those behaviors acceptable: the society in which that character lives, or our interruption, as readers, of what that society would have thought of such behavior? As we consider… Read More

“It’s Die Hard…with romance…”

on October 22, 2019

I’ll admit it, Die Hard has long been my favorite movie. Some might say this is a strange choice for a romance writer—but then, some might say I’m a strange romance writer generally…yeah, moving on!

I Can

on September 27, 2019

I don’t remember the exact moment, or even what led up to the moment, but sometime at the end of last year or the beginning of this year I realized that I had self-defeating thoughts. So many times, I would tell myself, “I can’t do that”. You begin to believe yourself, when all you tell… Read More

on September 26, 2019

by Lynn Winchester When I was asked to write a blog post, I racked my brain for topics that would be of interest. There are several things I could share about my book A Lady Never Tells, but I felt that lots of authors can gush about their books, but that’s not me. I wanted… Read More
