I'm really excited to have the lovely Lynn Montagano stopping by my blog today! Her latest book, Catch My Breath, is due for release on April 17th through HarperImpulse, but you can find out more about Lynn, and her writing, by checking out her fabulous Meet the Author interview!
I'll let the lady herself take it from here...
A fresh, new voice in contemporary romance, Lynn is a former TV news writer who decided to take the plunge and write a novel. She's thrilled that her debut, Catch My Breath, will be published by Harper Impulse in April 2014.
Not at all! A few years ago I challenged myself to write a book just to see if I could. It ended up turning into a trilogy. I’ve always written as a part of my career in TV news. You may be surprised to hear this but writing copy for live broadcast is a lot like getting inside of a character’s head. At least for me it was. When I wrote the scripts I did it in the voice and style of how the news anchor spoke. Believe it or not, it totally helped!
Do you listen to music while you write, or are you someone who needs complete silence to work?
Do you put any of yourself into any of your characters?
Is there a particular time of the day in which you prefer to write?
Paperback or ebooks – do you have a preference?
Do you plan your stories before you start writing them, or do you just “wing” it?
What makes you laugh?
