Here’s a short interview with the author of bestselling romance novels and thrillers, Sandra Brown, whose prose is beautiful, plots are masterfully crafted, suspense is nail-biting, characters are unforgettable.
She says that during her writing process she gets very emotionally involved in her novel, and that’s the way to get her readers emotionally involved too. If you, as an author, don’t cry or laugh, your readers are not going to, either.
So this wonderful writer, one of my favorites, likes “to evoke a visceral reaction in her reader.” Well, she certainly achieves it. While reading her 300-400 page novels in one-two days, I laugh and cry and bite my nails. No wonder they’re bestsellers. I can’t wait till her next one.
