Thanks for making your way from S. C. Mitchell's blog. Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy!
1. How do you respond to someone calling your writing smut or demeaning your work in some other way?
I disregard any negativity. I simply don't internalize it because I will never please everyone all the time. I will write what is authentic to me and hope that others enjoy the ride.
2. When critiquing or beta reading, do you ever find the voice of the other author creeping into your writing?
Thankfully, no. The members of my critique group each have such distinct voices. I love their writing in great part because each is so different from mine.
3. What’s one quirky thing you do or must have around you while writing?
Special pens. Even though I usually my manuscripts, I always have pens and pretty notebooks for jotting down ideas or scenes that need work. My favorite are Tul needle point pens. Don't even think about touching my pens!
Don't stop now, keep on hopping to the next author of red hot, spicy and sexy romances, Dani Jace.

From my work-in-progress which I'm calling The Ghost Story until the perfect title comes to me, page 7, line 7.
“Nick,” she said, cutting him off, “I appreciate your concern. Really, I do. But I need to be here. This house has been in my family a long time and it’s a part of me. I can’t leave.”
Perfect time to leave and end this conversation. She rose and moved to the kitchen entrance.
“It’s simple. Your job is to fix my house to my specifications. To make sure your crew gets it done right. You don’t have to like me or my house to do your job. Let me know if you need anything.” With a shrug, she turned into the shadows of the house.
Now, I'm tagging Raine Balkera, Renna Morgan, Veronica Forand, Tmonique Stephens, Jen McConnell, Shannon Kennedy and Morgan Wyatt to post your Lucky 7s!
