home and become a young, single mother to her seven year old nephew. No one in the small town of Madison Falls knows just how damaged she is, and they certainly don’t know her dirty little secret about where she’s been for the last two years.
Ever wonder what goes into writing a story? The plotting and research that an author does? Where the inspiration came from for a particular character? There are many hidden secrets or information that we wouldn’t know about the book or writing process. A lot more goes into the writing than we think! Here are some interesting facts you may not know about Broken: Secrets of Madison Falls.
I have always loved to write and tell stories. When I was a young child, I wrote stories all the time. As I got older, I stopped for some reason. I think we tend ot lose our child-like creativity as we get older, but writing fiction has been such a fun process for me because it’s like daydreaming that entertains readers and makes an income at the same time!
One of my strangest writing habits is sitting in my car. Yep, sometimes I sit in my car to write my stories. More accurately, I sometimes use my iPad to record my stories and have a software type my speech for me. I do it in my car so that I can be sure that I am totally alone and don’t sound like a nut talking to myself in my own house. Plus, with romance writing the scenes can be kind of intense so I wouldn’t want my kids standing at the door listening to me talk!
Sometimes I do type my stories using my iPad or laptop. I usually don’t outline much as I like to fly by the seat of my pants when it comes to writing. I enjoy watching my characters evolve naturally rather than trying to list out everything about them from the beginning.
“Broken” was a great story to write although it was definitely my most emotionally charged book so far. I enjoyed getting deep into Bella’s personality because I think it allowed readers to really connect with her and her story.
