Romance Weekly's Authors answer questions about serious and non-so-serious aspects of writing. Enjoy! This week's questions come from Nina Mason.
1. How does your writing impact your inner life?
I live a hectic, routine and generally undramatic life. It's the way I like it. Generally. But this mother of two, happily married wife craves adventure and magic.
Writing inspires me. I can walk through a doorway to another world in my mind and live another life through my characters. Anything is possible, magic pervades every scene, sparkles in the air.
2. How do you hope your books affect your readers?
I hope to take them on a magnificent emotional ride that always ends with a happy ending. We all need an escape where we see ourselves in someone else's struggles, where we can celebrate another's success in overcoming adversity. I hope we can remember that no one is perfect and even flawed individuals deserve second chances for love and happiness. Most of all, I want to celebrate diversity. No matter a person's race, creed or heritage, we are all more alike than different. And different makes life so much more interesting.
3. Has anyone ever told you your book changed their life? If so, how?
As a newly published writer, I haven't had the pleasure of such a statement. I do love when my critique partners tell me they love a particular scene or metaphor. That is pure magic.
Hop on over to Rebekah Ganiere's blog to discover how she's feels about impacting her readers! I bet she wants heart and soul, blood and passion.

Great answers. Gotta love being able to create drama in a way that doesn't affect your real life. ; )
