Creative Characterization with Author Jan Morrill

How often do you stare at a blank screen, pulling your hair out, gritting your teeth as you curse your muse? Maybe you’ve even crossed over into guzzling coffee (or martinis?) because you can’t figure out what to write next? It used to happen far too often with me. Then, one day, rather than trying to figure out the story myself, I began to ask my characters to help me, […]

How Scottish Festivals Changed My Life and Informed My Fiction

When you decide to put pen to paper—or fingers to keyboard—and write, you never know what will happen.  It’s like stepping out the door to take a little trip to the store and finding yourself miles and miles from your original destination because you took a different path and found adventures you did not expect.

Millions of the orange and black winged creatures swirled in the air and covered the entire cathedral. The dream woke me and would not let me fall […]

Voodoo Butterfly Cover Reveal

I am over the moon about the cover for Voodoo Butterfly. So how does a cover get made? My publisher had me submit a form that listed various details about my book (like physical descriptions of the characters, setting, important objects, etc.).
