Fair warning toall involved I write the way I speak. Bad grammar, punctuation in odd places,lots of bold or italics, sarcasm abounds and yes I even get a potty mouth fromtime to time. My pen name, which I will be using here, is Kat but most of thetime Iím answering to mom. I have a beautiful little girl that is almost 2 and anequally beautiful husband that is kind enough to support my passion while it'sstill only my hobby. I do most of my writing during nap time and after bed. My charactersare like family and I never quite know what may come out of there mouths next. Alot like the 2 year old and husband now that I think about it. I am aparanormal romance writer with a love of anything with vampires that don'tsparkle. This said it was a shock to me when I discovered that NONE of the charactersof my first full length novel has a biting fetish. I mean come on. I set out towrite a vampire book and it was like my hero just looked at me cocked a tawnyeyebrow and said "you want me to do what..." he got all uppity andpouty and simply refused to fit into the box I had made for him...and you knowwhat, the story is better for it. I have something fun and different and notthe same as half the trendy books on shelves right now. It's more work, more researchand more time, but I wouldn't change it for anything. This new direction allowsfor more openings. I have more options to work more follow-ups into the charactersand to branch off into other parts of this world. So I would like to dedicatemy first post to Dominic; my hero, for now.
