Thank you so much Marissa Tejada, for inviting me to participate in this Q&A!
1) What am I working on?
I’m polishing the final draft of Venus and Adonis and then taking a break from goddesses until my daughter’s preschool is back in session. In the meantime, I’m working on a shorter ya paranormal horror story called Blood and Other Matter.
2) How does my work differ from others of its genre?
My Daughters of Zeus series features the actual Greek gods in modern times, not their descendants, not reincarnations of them, not similar supernaturals thrust into the same story.
Blood and Other Matter is features the scarier side of the paranormal, where instead of just being hot and misunderstood, the monsters are bad guys. It’s very early in the writing process though.
4) How does your writing process work?
Ah, speaking of that. Well, I just discovered Scrivener, so I’m plotting away on their cork board and taking my first draft through writer’s group 5,000 words at a time. Right now I’m staying just ahead of the deadline date for writer’s group so it’s slow going. I’ve got a very rough outline and about ten chapters written. Those ten chapters will hopefully become thirty, and then get written and rewritten as I go through draft after draft of revision. I tend to go through three to four major revision drafts before I get it in the hands of a publisher and go through their editing process.
Thank you again, Marissa, for the invite!
