Madison and Alex: The Date

Madison and Alex: The Date

It’s time for a confession: I didn’t want to write Alex and Madison’s date. For the last year, I’ve known this scene was coming, but no matter how I spun it in my head, I couldn’t muster up any excitement for the date. Here was the problem: Dr. Alex Love is part of Madison’s normal world.… Continue Reading

A Thinking Kitty

A Thinking Kitty

Everyone needs a thinking kitty. In case you’re not familiar with the term I just made up, a thinking kitty is a cat with the patience to help you work through your thoughts or who will tag along as you learn about new things.

I… Continue Reading

Madison Fox Book 3 Has a Title

Mid-July, I started flushing out the outline and brainstorming like crazy for the third Madison Fox novel. Almost immediately, I got a title idea…and dismissed it. I finished the outline and began writing in the last week in August, and though I’d gone through a dozen other title ideas, I kept returning to the first… Continue Reading

Where Novel Ideas Come From

Where Novel Ideas Come From

I’ve been performing a lot of magic lately. I’ve been building worlds out of nothing, pulling ideas out of the ether. I call this brainstorming or world building, but really it’s magic. It’s the same type of magic that creates dreams—not the dreams that are regurgitations of previous experiences, but the dreams that are wild… Continue Reading
