Motivation: Blame it on Their Parents and Other Ways to Explain Why Our Characters
Do What They Do Mastering Deep Point Of View (with hands-on practice) Rejecting
Southern as sweet tea, she’s used her sassy voice to take romance where no one else
has dared to go. Author of twenty-one books, she’s fed her heroes banana and
mayonnaise sandwiches, as well as Fancy Feast on white bread. Her heroines have
used tampons, toilet plungers, and ol’ fashioned tongue lashings as weapons. In her
books, she’s had talking refrigerators, gassy dogs, and even stashed a dead villain
in a porta-potty wearing a hat that says, “Shit Happens and then you die.” She’s
penned vampires who say ‘ain’t’ and ‘ya’ll’ who could charm the blood right out of
you. And that charmed her right up to the New York Times list, too.
Not that this southern belle hasn’t paid her dues. Her name is practically
synonymous with rejection. On top of those thousands of ‘no-thank you’ letters,
she’s been orphaned by editors, wrangled with agents, survived two bankrupt
publishers, and even gotten sued by her own home state.
