You’re probably asking yourself what zucchinis have to do with a romance writer. It all started at the outdoor, summer market. I needed a thick, good-sized zucchini, one to slice and grill on the barbecue. As I picked up a perfect one, my recent hero popped into my head and said, “It is time to couple.”
My response, “It’s too soon for sex.” Of course I didn’t
A walk on the beach got me upset. It started off wonderful, a beautiful, warm, sunny day and early enough that there were no crowds. I had just come across the shell in this pic and was about to pick it up when Dawn (heroine from my Highlander Trilogy) popped into my head. Her hands gestured quickly, warning me not to pick it up. That some things are best left as they are. Clearly, there was much more she wished to say and I plopped down on the sand to communicate the best I could with my heroine who had no voice.
Grab your copy now of The King’s Executioner before the release of book 2, The King’s Warrior in September.

Question… I walked along the beach this morning to clear my head and get out in the sunshine since I’ve been buried inside writing. I wasn’t surprised that one of my Highlanders joined me, though I was surprised to see it was Cree.
After saying what was on his mind, he suggested I pose a question to all of you.
Cree says there is a dangerous mystery brewing and he knows Dawn is going to jump head first into it. He believes it will take time to figure it all out and that he will have his hands full keeping Dawn out of harm’s way. So he proposes I write a full length book as soon as I can fit it into my schedule.
So, do you agree with Cree? Would you all like a new full length novel about Cree & Dawn?
My hero spent a good portion of the day telling me that he needed a scene where he could run into battle completely naked. Why, I asked, would you do that while my mind went crazy imagining the scene? I’m a Pict he told me and Picts sometimes fight naked. The Picts were the forefathers of the Highlanders and were known as the Painted People, due to their many tattoos. So, you can imagine what my mind was conjuring.
I went back and checked my research and sure enough he was right or so it was believed. I wondered if it was because they were so scantily dressed that the Picts were considered naked by foreign invaders. But who was I to argue with my hero and just the thought of such a scene…well I just had to give in to him. Of course I had to write and rewrite the scene to get it the way he wanted it, but I had a grand time doing so. You’ll be able to read it in The King’s Warrior, available in September. Oh, naturally the heroine was also in the scene…and she saw everything! 🙂
Look for further adventures of a romance writer coming your way!
