Writing Intoxication was part therapy, part-fantasy. It’s been said a million times that paranormal ideas help people deal with hard emotional concepts.
I’m going to take the party line here and say…Yupp that’s me. This novel was my lifesaver this past year.
Normally, I don’t divulge into the privacy of my personal life, but I find talking about the reason behind this novel isn’t complete without the whole picture. I wrote this novel in a purge of a moment, desperate to get emotions off my chest. It took me one month to write close to fifty thousand world, then it took two months to get it revised correctly. When I pitched it to Lori Perkins she told me I was a purge writer.
Last year, my husband was diagnosis with cancer, and during the time I wrote this book, I sat next to him during chemo treatments, my house was over ran with caring loving family members and I struggled each day to keep a stable happy front for all my family, my children and especially my husband. This book as out there as it is, helped me get those weird emotions I struggled with under control. My life was so out of the box that I wrote out of the box. I would sit there and say, how can I make this even more extreme and I would write it. So sometimes even with all the craziness in the world, some good can come from it.
