I want to write a book.
So, I did. As I'm gearing up for Taking Flight's release this week, I can't help but turn my attention to my next release in October.
The Mating Call will be the first in a new series of mountain lion shifters. This field has been a common scenery throughout my childhood and has bled into my adult one. I always wondered what it would be like to have a town up here. A true mountain town that was simple and maybe ran more by a family than anything else. So, Long Claw was created. Finally, I'm putting my dreams to a fictional reality. There's more than what the picture shows, open area all the way around me as we drove to where we would be hiking for the day yesterday.
Anyways, enough about that book. Want to know the inspiration for Taking Flight? It's simple. It all started with talking with another author that there aren't many female leads in romance named Jody. It took off from there.
I have a neurodivergent mind so it works in a super strange way that most don't understand. It's also inspired by a group of guys I hung out with in high school. There's a piece of each of them in the Code of Honor series.
This week, I wrap up the second draft of another book coming out next year, another cowboy romance.
I hope you had a great Fourth of July if you celebrated. We hiked, had dinner with my parents, and then stayed home to binge watch Dragon Ball.
Have a fantastic week!
