Sometimes when I am deeply into my writing, all else falls away and I forget time and place. An entire day can go by with me sitting at my desk
, not ever changing out of my pajamas or answering my phone. I often need to remind myself that the people I’m writing about aren’t real; the places are fictional and the story is entirely fabricated.
When I’m mid-novel, I often dream about my characters. It all seems real to me, down to the smallest details. Of course, the hope is that this all makes it to the page and that my reader ultimately feels the same way about my books as I do!
And big news — I’m close to finishing Book One of my trilogy, “The Gypsy Moth Chronicles”.
I’m excited and promise to share more about this exciting project soon!
