As many times as readers have asked, I have tried to stick to my self-imposed rule that I won’t cast my characters and you won’t ever see my main characters’ faces on my covers. Because I want you, the reader, to create your own images. I provide enough description to get you started, but you get to fill in the blanks how you want them to look. I just think it makes for a better reading experience. I also think this is especially true for the male lead, because I don’t want to force my image of Mr. Beautiful on … Continue reading

Do you ever wish you could project the images of your characters in your head to paper? Not just cutting out models or actors that come close, but the exact image you have. Some of you, I know, are talented artists and can do just this. But not me. I can do graphic design with existing objects and fonts and manipulate pictures to an extent. I have absolutely no artistic talent, though. There are several things in my books that are completely made up by me. I don’t mean the story (or…besides the story, which is pretty obvious).

While I’m at the Miami Book Fair International, I’m also hanging out over at Elizabeth Mueller’s place. I won a contest a while back and part of my prize was a drawing of one of my characters by the very talented Elizabeth. She drew me this beauty: Isn’t she beautiful??? If you’ve read Promise, you might know what she is, though she doesn’t really appear in the book. What is she? Find out here.
