Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy!
I am answering these questions based on my book, Guarding His Heart (Wiccan Haus series).
1. How did you get the idea for your book? Honestly, I watch way too much Animal Planet and SyFy Channel. So, I started thinking about how there could be so many Sasquatch sitings with no evidence. I came up with a theory: they're shifters. Naturally a tall, silent and stealthy shifter makes a perfect bodyguard, especially if he can "disappear" into his surroundings.
2. How did you decide on the title? Bigfoot are notoriously wary of humans. Trevor has a problem trusting humans, though he doesn't have any problem enjoying women's charms when he gets a yen. Cassidy is a kindred spirit- quiet, reserved, lost.
3. What motivated you to get the book completed and published? I met Dominique Eastwick at Chesapeake Romance Writer's conference a year ago and was intrigued with her shared world series. After reading Shifting Hearts, I was hooked and decided to write and submit my own story. My critique partner beta read and bled all over it and I finished the edits and synopsis at our annual retreat. I would say my CRW and RWA sisters were my motivation!
