Meet the Characters – Elijah Kader

By |2016-12-16T13:27:12-06:00February 9th, 2017|Madion War|

Today, we’re talking about one of my favorite side characters, Sergeant Elijah Kader. He’s one of those people that started off as a name and a voice, and then turned into one of my favorites in the series. Slight spoilers for The Island and The Chasm.  […]

I Love You, You’re Perfect, Now Change – Writing Realistic Romance

By |2016-12-16T13:27:07-06:00February 6th, 2017|Madion War|

Romance is far and away one of the biggest selling genres, but for me personally, it’s not my favorite. Imagine my surprise when I realized I’d written a romance trilogy in The Island. Not romance as a sub-plot, but an actual romance as the main story.

For me, alpha males and weepy damsels-in-distress […]

Meet the Characters – Prince Galian Helmuth, MD

By |2016-12-16T13:27:37-06:00February 2nd, 2017|Madion War|

 

Galian Helmuth, prince, doctor, naive optimist, is one of my favorite characters. He’s a perfect foil to the hard and jaded Theo, but at the same time, has some of the best character growth of any that I’ve written. And he’s pretty darn cute, too.

All Worldbuilding Politics are Local – Writing Realistic Political Strife

By |2016-12-16T13:27:34-06:00January 30th, 2017|Madion War|

The Madion War Trilogy is based in a world torn apart by war. But as with most wars, it’s not just about the land and the resources. Any student of history can tell you that conflict is rarely black and white, and ending conflict is even more murky. This blog […]

Meet the Characters – Captain Theo Kallistrate, RAF

By |2017-03-14T08:31:45-05:00January 26th, 2017|Madion War|

Today, I wanted to share a little bit more about my girl-crush, Captain Theo Kallistrate. She’s one of my favorite, most complex characters, and I’m so excited to share how her story ends in The Union. Read about this feisty, patriotic pilot who captures the prince’s heart.

Creating a Real World from Fantasy in Madion Trilogy

By |2016-12-16T13:27:53-06:00January 23rd, 2017|Madion War|

I’m not your typical fantasy writer in that I sit and dream up worlds, then write within them. I start with characters, situations, and then flesh out the world as my characters explore it. In writing my fantasy romance series, the Madion War Trilogy, I was faced with […]

Cover Change: Allowing a Mulligan

By |2017-03-20T10:53:25-05:00July 22nd, 2016|Madion War|

One of the nice things about being self-pub is that I have carte blanche to do what I want, when I want. Being the marketing guru that I am, I try to not change things a lot. But sometimes, my gut tells me that it’s time to make a change, […]
