Then I grew up, went to college, met my dream guy, got married, had kids and life went on. Once the kids left for college it was like.... wow! I have all this time so I did a lot of reading and discovered there was this amazing world of authors that I'd never heard of before.
Authors that actually wrote sci-fi romance! Really! Where had this been all my life, it sure wasn't in my small town bookstore, and they wrote like I thought, like life really was, just in a different setting.
How amazing! Their characters had humor and they had flaws. They weren't 'perfect' because none of us are. I loved it and it kicked my imagination into high gear so I pulled out my laptop and wrote it down.
As for when I finish.... that's hard, I'll admit that I always wonder was there more I should of told... that's why Cassandra's Challenge was over 200,000 words (and that was after trimming it), there was always something more that needed to be told.
But that's what I like about writing a series. The story is never really 'finished'; you get to see how their lives progress in other books. For example when Lisa finally gives birth we'll get to see how Grim handles it, or doesn't. If I hadn't known I could do that, Grim would probably still not be done because that's going to be so interesting.
