What do I love about writing? It is both an escape and therapy. When I need to get away from the stresses and pressures of the day or life in general, I can escape into a make believe world. It might be the short story or a full novel. Whatever the length, the characters and situations allow me to visit their world. Taking pen to paper, for poems and to my happy places inside me allow therapy in its purest form. Being able to later share these stories with readers, and hearing their feedback, serves as a sense of validation. Sometimes it’s as simple and pure as pouring a heartache into paper, sharing it with others and healing through their comments. It validates both the experience and the writing. Further writing is a challenge to constantly improve skills, master struggles and grow in abilities.

“I am so sorry about all this fuss,” Tilly Mae apologized for the twentieth time. “If I had known you were planning to leave, I would not have come. I feel just terrible.”
Darby painted on another smile before turning around, hoping the thin thread on her composure held. By the time Tilly Mae had risen from her nap, Darby’s tears were all dried. She had hoped to hide her situation from her guest but it hadn’t taken the girl long to figure it all out. At first Darby had been amazed at her intuitiveness. Now she just wanted to get away. Nerves stretched taunt, she felt torn between her duties as an innkeeper and her feelings as a woman betrayed.
Now it’s my turn. What do I love about writing? Everything. I love the dreams that blossom on the paper. I love the research to expand on the details. I love meeting people that tell me interesting things or correct my French. I love the excitement of a book appearing like magic on Kindle, and the smell of new print books in the box. Here for your pleasure is a peek at A Vampire for Christmas, Book 3 in the Vampires in New York Series.
Where love burns eternal and whispers in the dark!

Georgia turned to face him. They were so very close, his mouth above her lips, his eyes gazing deeply into hers. She could feel him searching for some answer. Then his lips possessed her mouth so gently, sweetly, as if to caress. Georgia felt herself melting like the snowflake touching the ocean wave. She kissed him back. Every kiss led to another.
