Who Am I as a writer?

Julie Cosgrove asked me to be part of this rolling blog tour. Julie's blog is Where did You Find God Today? http://wheredidyoufindgodtoday.com/

This tour is just to introduce authors to difference audiences.
What am I currently working on?
I'm working on book 2 in my Rodeo Heroes series for Love Inspired. Joel Kaye is the brother of the heroine in the first of book of the series, LI, A RANCH TO CALL HOME.

How does my work differ from others in my genre? I've written in romantic suspense, inspirational romantic suspense, and inspirational romance.  How does my writing differ from others is in my style. How I see the world is uniquely mine. In the middle of searching for answers, or a killer, I have occasional moments that makes the reader smile. Cops often have a strange sense of humor to cope with what they see. My characters do that.

Why do I write what I do?  I write the stories God gives me. I want people to know if you've made mistakes in your life, you're normal and there is a way out of it. I write to encourage.

What's my writing process?  I usually set a daily writing goal and break up my writing times. I do half of my pages in the morning and the other half  in the late afternoon.  I can't sit down and knock out 20 to 30 pages in a marathon writing session.  My well fills up for 6-8 pages a day, then I run out of words.  Once my cursor rolls over to the page I needed to get to, and I've met my goal, I turn off my machine and get out of my program.  Five minutes later when the rest of the sentence or the next line occurs to me, I write it down, and I'm immediately  into the book.

My newest book is an ebook, THE LAST LIE, which is a inspirational  romantic suspense about a woman whose parents have disappeared, and when she sees her father, she pursues him. This book has MI6, KGB, CIA, Canadian spy agency and Interpol.  If you like fast action, you'll enjoy this book.
