A Creative Journal for the Inspirationally Challenged

1.     How did you get started writing?
 I began writing when I was a young twenty something trapped in the masculine world of the military. Writing romance helped me stay in touch with my feminine side and kept me out of trouble.

2.     Name three things on your desk right now.
A typewriter, stack of books, and an Edgar Allan Poe action figure.

3.     Hamburger or sushi?
Hamburger…but with cheese. I don’t like the idea of raw fish.

4.     If I were your favorite cookie I would be what flavor?

5.     Open your new release to any page and tell us what is happening.
A question: Start writing a piece from the end.

6.     Heels, flats or sneakers? (or nothing at all)
Soft squishy socks if I have a choice, chuck taylors if I don’t.

7.     Tell us one tip you would pass on to new writers.
Keep going but it never gets easier.

8.     Plotter or pantster?
Pantser until about ¼ of the way then you kinda have to plot.

9.     What is your favorite movie or book and why?
That is a hard one…I could never list all the books. Favorite movie has to be Under the Tuscan Sun…I often dream of running away (to Italy no less).

10.  What's next on your writerly horizon?
Currently tweaking a book previously known as Legend’s Fall. I’m expanding and revising for it’s re-release.

It is a truth universally acknowledged that any writer, in possession of a beautiful idea, will have a bad day and need to mainline caffeine. Ok well, maybe not, but as writers ourselves we know that everyone has good and bad days. The most important thing is that you keep writing.

Here is the Goodreads page:


Monica Corwin

Monica Corwin is an outspoken writer who attempts to make romance accessible to everyone no matter their preferences. As a new Northern Ohioian Monica enjoys snow drifts, three seasons of weather, and disliking Michigan. When not writing Monica spends time with her daughter and her ever growing collection of tomes about King Arthur.


Decadent Kane

Decadent Kane, author of the trouble with elves series, writes paranormal romance with heat. She lives in Wyoming with a full house: 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 guinea pig, 1 rat, 2 kids, and 1 fiance.

An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.

She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She'll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.

Beware the sprites.

Follow the wisps.

But never look a drow elf king in the eyes...
