I wish I could say my writing just pours out without editing or scrapping the whole book and starting over, but I’m happy to say it doesn’t. Full Circle, a paranormal romance, didn’t start out this way. My muse, whom I call Sheba, is a wicked muse. When she began editing, she realized she had not pushed and prodded every nerve ending until I was screaming from the top of each roller coaster ride of settings, black moments, the first touch, the first kiss, falling in love to reaching that first orgasm of Cat and Dante’s souls bonding for eternity.
Sheba delights in reminding me why I love this genre and the heroes and heroines I am continually drawn towards. Carolyn Manzo, one of my favorite Housewives of New Jersey, and author of Let Me Tell You Something, provided one of the qualities today on The Talk show that I look for in my heroes and heroines – Loyalty.
I agree with her – If you don’t have loyalty, you have nothing.
Sheba finds many other ways to inspire me in bringing my heroes and heroines more alive. Her favorites are the Winchester men, Sam and Dean, from Supernatural. Their names and faces evoke women to instantly drool and seek every clip, picture, re-run and video available.
Why do we, as authors and readers, find ourselves drawn to heroes like Sam and Dean who are tortured, strong, loyal and have every woman wanting more?
I know why I willingly surrender to my muse by re-reading certain authors or watching countless episodes of the Winchester men, but I feel it’s best experienced by your own eyes and ears why heroes, like Sam and Dean, are so loved and followed…
