When I first decided I wanted to be a writer I didn't spend a great deal of time thinking about the realities of the writing life. If I had, I probably would have pictured myself sitting at my computer happily wallowing in a sea of words for hours and days at a time. Looking back […]

Tropes

Sometimes, when we're looking for our next read, we know exactly what we're in the mood for. We could be craving a 'secret baby romance' or a 'friends to lovers' story. And we all know what it's like to have a single phrase jump out at us from a book blurb in a 'You have […]

What's in a Name?

The Creative Spark

A friend recently asked me if the hardest part of writing a book is coming up with the idea.
