I loved your installment of the Rising Storm series, Dance In The Wind. I was struck by how seamless the transition was from one author to another. Was that a difficult task?
Well, let me think about that…YES! At first I was worried I wouldn’t be able to do justice to the series – it was the first time writing in a soap opera type venue where you play pass the ball lol! But I was so addicted to the installments before Dance In the Wind and I studied the character bible closely, and then played with the characters and had fun with it. Once I began writing the story, I didn’t think of anything but the characters, so I took it as a good sign!
What did you think when Julie Kenner and Dee Davis approached you with this awesome and different project?
My first question was – “How did they have the time?” and then “You are both rock stars!” I had never heard of a project like this before, and I was very excited and humbled to be asked to write an episode. There was no way I’d say no to such an opportunity! They had a vision for this series that was unique and I’m proud to be a part of it.
What were some of the soap-style shows you watched, or still do?
I was addicted to As the World Turns and Guiding Light. Also Dallas. My grandmother used to live with me when I was young, and when I got off the school bus we’d have a snack together and go downstairs at 3:00pm to watch Guiding Light together. We had so much fun and bonded over the delicious antics and Friday cliffhangers. Honestly, it’s some of the best memories I had as a kid. And when I was an older kid – I was hooked on Dawson’s Creek and Felicity lol!
How much fun was it coming up with some of the drama these characters have to deal with? (insert evil laugh)
Oh, I Had a blast!! First off, the series is chock full of villains, and heroes, and angsty teens, and they deal with sex, and family, and social problems – anything goes! So when I got to write my part, I dug deep and really let the characters play to the extreme – because that is what makes great soap operas! How nice to be on the other side as a writer for a change, and watch the readers’ reactions when they have to wait for the next installment! (inserts evil laugh!)
