Serious Round

Can you recall a particular scene that was painful or traumatic for you to write?

The most difficult, bleeding from my veins scene that I will probably ever write is contained in my third book, Designed. It takes place in Chapter 17, and it's when Blake miscarries her baby (not a spoiler any more). I had tears running down my face when I wrote it. I sobbed when I edited it. I've cried every single time I've read it. I am to the point where if I'm going back through my work, I simply skip over that part.

Do you plan or pants it?

I consider myself a pantser. I don't write from an outline, or start out with a set chapter structure in my head. I just go with what feels right. That being said, I tend to think obsessively about my characters when I'm doing random things: waiting in line at the grocery, on hold with the car repair place, etc. So by the time I sit down to write, I've already composed dialogue or scenes that I want to have happen. I just need to find the right place for them.

Wacky Question

What candy bar would describe your book?

Changed would definitely be a Snickers bar. This installment is certainly the most lighthearted of the four so far. The heroine has been the comic relief in all of the previous books, and she isn't about to stop when she gets the spotlight. At the same time, there's an undeniable nougat center that leaves you full and satisfied.
