What got you started in writing? It’s something I’ve always enjoyed. As dorky as it sounds, I even enjoyed writing papers for school. I started by co-writing a couple books, then finally branched out on my own last year and am loving every second of it.
When you sit down and have a new story in mind do you write out a timeline of events before you start writing? Not really. I have a few key points that I know I’ll hit, but I just let the story take me where it goes as I write. Sometimes that’s terrifying.
Do you ever roll play with your significant other and act out any of your characters? Nope
Skittles or M&Ms? Oooow, that’s a hard one. Ummmmm, M&Ms.
Cake or Ice Cream? Ice cream
Who needs love when you have money?
It used to be enough, but now it’s not.
Not since he walked into my life and made me question everything.
Now I want more, but I know that’s impossible.
Things aren’t always as they seem.
My true self is hidden, and that works for me.
Or it did.
I hide in a bed of deception to disguise myself, and I’m good at it.
Or I was.
I’m Elizabeth Fitzgerald.
I’m a Senator’s wife.
And I hate my life.
After a few minutes, he says, “I know there’s more to you, Elizabeth. I can tell there’s someone hidden inside you dying to come out. I can see it in the fake smile you show everyone, including Cal, the way you frown when you’re alone in your thoughts, and the sadness that’s lurking in your eyes. Why are you hiding?”
God help me, but there’s something in the way he speaks to me that makes me want to lay all my secrets and sins bare. He’s soft and gentle, but most importantly, I believe he wants to know more about me. He’s not asking to gain leverage or use it to his advantage, he’s genuinely concerned. And it makes me want to tell him everything. But the rational side of my brain tells me not to, so I reel in this strange impulse to divulge my secrets to a man I hardly know.
