My story is about a woman who wants a home and a family. Because, while Warriors of Seneca includes science fiction and fantasy concepts and while I placed Romans and Vikings into the same universe (because it’s fun), and while there are some intense scenes of battle in the tale, at the center of this… Read More

It’s the second book in the Scorpius Syndrome series, and boy, did I do a lot of research before writing those. Here are five things I didn’t realize when I started researching what would happen… Read More
by Rebecca Zanetti So, I have a new post-apocalyptic series releasing, and I conducted tons of research before starting to write. Many of the foremost scientists of our times believe a humankind ending disaster is a matter of when and not if. And these are the smartest people on the planet! Did you know that… Read More
One of the things I really love about being a writer is doing research for a new book series. Writing always starts with a basic idea and the constant question of “what if?” After a short time I generally have a pretty good idea of who my main characters are, a little bit of their… Read More
by Sherrel Lee Thanks for stopping by to read this blog posting. I thought I would tell you a bit of how myth, legend and lore became the central focus for the Valens. I’ve always love myth and have read the classics stories–Greek, Celtic, Roman, and Norse and I realized that as much as I… Read More
Dragons and virgin princesses. I’ve always thought the stories of maidens sacrificed to dragons most unfair. Not just the sacrifice, but that if some hero came to save them they were his prize. After all, it could be anyone! And that was the seed for my story, The Dragon and the Princess, which first appeared… Read More
Is there anything better, hotter or more intriguing than a sexy, brilliant and tortured hero? A man or a male, if you’re reading paranormal, who’s been deeply and irrevocably hurt by his family, a woman or another in his para clan? Lord, I don’t think so. I love them dangerous and lusty – undecided about kissing… Read More

Some ideas spring from life experiences—people I’ve known, things I’ve done. Some of the more fantastical ideas sprout… Read More

They float, wiggle their fins, open and shut their mouths, and in general are colorful but restful creatures. They’re not as much fun to Tweet about, but… Well, okay, 1 or 2 cats might be okay.

Although I admit, sitting near the water’s edge at Lake Union and… Read More
