Description: When an ancient evil
grows bored and slips topside all hell breaks loose.
When asked to submit a post about writing and
its process, the first thing I thought of was coming up with the story. When I
am writing, a number of my characters, plots, and dialogue come from my
experiences. I also discovered that the more I write, the more I pay attention
to my surroundings and find bits and pieces that I can use. It is interesting
what you can come up with using a little imagination and a lunchroom full of
women of various ages. Let’s not forget the wealth of material waiting at
Wal-Mart on a Friday after payday.
For me, horror is my first love, but I have
recently stretched my wings into the erotica genre. When Angels Fall is my
first venture into this new arena. In the beginning, I had no idea that this
book would end up in an erotica setting. My idea was to write a demon who takes
over the life of a rich brat and does things his way. In addition, his
salacious ways are in some ways, over the top, but that is what I meant. This
story is the what would you do, if you could rip through anyone at your job
type of tale. This includes going off on fellow sycophants, having wild sex
with the office slut, you name it and it’s there. It may not be your cup of
tea, but the story is meant for escaping from reality and that’s what I want
the reader to do.
I have also written a few fantasy stories as
well. They involve dragons, quests, wood sprites, and far off kingdoms. My
early writings mostly reflect my love of quests, the handsome prince and a
wicked evil. I enjoyed writing these because I wanted to create the kind of
stories that I grew up reading and watching. I was a huge fan of The Hobbit
series, Legend and The Eyes of the Dragon. These stories are all about the
fight against evil and those who rise to the occasion when called.
For me, writing is a great escape and being able
to tell the stories I like and have people say they enjoy them is a thrill. Who
knows, maybe I will be able to inspire someone to pick up a pen and get to
As for going into the writing field,
there are a number of rules. Honing the skill is the most important piece. My
earlier stories were clumsy and clunky. I had no idea of how to pace the story
and make it flow so that the reader isn’t lost. There is also this little thing
called grammar. Even though we speak to people every day and use verbs,
adjectives, and pronouns, when writing, you have to curb the overuse of these
precious commodities. Too many pronouns and the story is lost. You can also
confuse the reader. Too many “be” verbs and the story becomes awkward and
cumbersome. Researching proper grammar and practicing every day can make one a
better writer and it helps to develop your style. So good luck and I hope to
continue to entertain you in the future.
