  • Conversations with Sapphire J Blue with Author Drica Armstrong

    in Writing

    Richard had the world in the palm of his hand with the love of his wife, child, and friends. There was nothing Richard wanted more except more time with his wife, Vivian. Four years after they got married and two years after the birth of their daughter, Eva, Vivian was killed in a car accident leaving Richard behind to cope with the loss of his better half. Richard and Vivian’s childhood friends, Tara and Dylan, and his mother, Lena, aided Richard in the process of getting on with his life. Vivian’s death caused a shakeup among the family, but nothing was compared to Lena’s wrath when Richard betrayed Vivian by marrying Tara, just two years later.  Years later Richard still struggled with Vivian’s passing as he tried to keep Tara and Lena from killing each other. Lena loved Vivian like a daughter and was not happy about anyone taking her place, especially Tara. While Lena spent her time plotting to get Tara away from her son and grand-daughter, Tara fought for her husband’s attention from Vivian’s overshadowing memory. And, just when Tara thought it was safe to let her guard down her worst nightmare came back for vengeance-- Vivian.  Despite the shock of Vivian’s return, Lena thanked the powers that be; while Richard felt stuck between the undead wife and the current wife. Vivian has come back to claim her rightful place between her husband and daughter, yet she hadn’t planned on Richard giving his hear to her best friend. At the request of a marriage counselor, Richard is required to spend a full evening alone with Vivian to get down to the truth in order to decide if he is ready to forgive her and resume their life together, or let her go and move on with Tara. When all of the secrets are brought to the light, will Vivian need a fall guy or will she be thrown under the bus with the ULTIMATE Betrayal Between the Sheets.

  • WRITERS TRICKS OF THE TRADE - USING CHARACTERS' PROFESSIONS IN UNUSUAL WAYS

    in Writing

    Selecting professions for your characters and deciding how they would act under a given set of circumstances is one of the most important decisions a fiction writer can make. Will they respond in a way normally expected of someone trained to do what they do? Will they go “over-the-top” or perform in a scared or devious manner? Each reaction is the basis for an entirely different story. Whether it is positive or negative, once the theme choice is made, the character still operates under the umbrella of their profession.

    Anne Redelfs is a retired psychiatrist who has been studying human beings for as long as she can remember. She has a bachelor’s degree from Duke University and a medical degree from Tulane University, where she completed two years of residency in pediatrics and three years in psychiatry at Tulane-affiliated hospitals. However, she considers life her greatest teacher. She passes on this instruction to others that they too might learn to listen to their lives.

    On this episode of Writer's Cafe author Juila Lake Mills will be joining Willow to discuss all things writing!  The show will air Friday June 5th at 10 am EST.
    Author Bio:  Julia Lake Mills
    I am a sarcastic, southern woman that would rather spend all day laughing than a minute crying. I have 2 of the most amazing daughters ever created, a menagerie of animals and a voracious appetite for reading. I decided to write the stories running through my brain and am having an absolute blast!! I read my first book, Dr Suess' Cat in The Hat, by myself at 4 and have been hooked ever since. I believe a good book along with shoes, makeup and purses will never let a girl down. I know for a fact that all heroes in all the books I have ever read or will ever write pale in comparison to my hero, my dad! I am a sucker for a happy ending and love some hot sweaty sex with a healthy dose of romance. I am still working on my story but can guarantee you that it will contain as love and laughter as I can cram into it!!!!! Dare to Dream! Have the Strength to Try EVERYTHING! Never Look Back!
