You know you’re a contemporary paranormal romance writer when…
…several of your A.N.G.E.L.s follow you around the grocery store, advising you on the best things to purchase and you have to refrain from answering them out loud for fear you will be banned from Super Wal-Mart forever;
…you hear one of your A.N.G.E.L.s singing a soft lullaby for you at night and dream of them all night long, waking rested and loaded with tons of new story ideas;
…you talk aloud to your characters on a road trip because you know they are there in the car with you;
…and you hear them answer.
This is how it is with my characters. They live and breathe not only in my head, but by my side wherever I go. My A.N.G.E.L.s are quite secular, so occasionally they cuss along with me when something goes wrong but I know they’re around so everything will be okay.
My A.N.G.E.L. stories could be classified as romantic suspense if it weren’t for the paranormal aspect. I like to think of that aspect as an alternate world that exists alongside ours, a what-if that could happen, but we don’t really know for sure that it has not.
