What is your next big project?

HH-A I am currently in the final revisions of a darker mystery that takes place during WW II. Then I have a 3-act play to revise, plus several short stories calling to me. I tend to have 4 or 5 things going at one time. This way I never have writer’s block. I just move on to something else that seems to be more compelling. But I always finish what I start. It’s a blessing, it’s a curse. I can’t think of one writing project I haven’t followed through.

PB-A Currently, I'm working toward finishing the first book in a series that features immortal characters with a spin. Instead of working with the traditional characters, we selected afew that were different, trolls, centaurs, merpeople, demons, angels, elves, and more and gave them life. The series is planned for 10 books but we're marketing the first four to a prospective publisher at the moment.

Let me ask anyone out there, do you ever get writer's block? And do you have more than one project going at a time? I'm curious to know if it helps anyone else to keep the momentum going!

When I feel the writer's block coming on I use to switch to another project. Now, I'm like you sort of. I've got two, a full and short, in the works. I alternate between them thereby keeping my mind fresh.

Lindsay, was a darling dog! You don't see Collies much these days, yet they are so beautiful and gentle.

And they make great characters in my books. Check out this link to see what I'm talking about. http://murdersandmysteries.wordpress.com/a-body-in-the-attic-an-emily-dahill-cid-story/
