I
love writing Chick Lit/ Romance. I recently re-edited and reapplied
the lipstick of my Chic Lit Serial, Deja Vu of Love. The series
starts off with Deja Vu Packing for the Journey the first book of the
story in the Deja Vu Series. As a writer, I am partial to using a
third person multiple POV style of writing. Although not well known
it is frequently used in Romance and other genres where multiple
points of views add to the depth and value of the story line and
character interactions.
I
prefer moving the story along through the use of dialogue versus
narrative. I think it’s because I can give a distinct voice to all my
characters. As a writer, I believe that dialogue helps define the
characters as breathing, warm blooded people. I write about real
women with flaws who are strong and confident and ready to live life.
Women like all of us who don’t always have dinner ready on the
table. The one who acts inappropriately at PTA meetings once in a
blue moon you know the girl I’m talking about, it’s you.
I
enjoy watching my characters grow and change as the story of their
lives unfolds. I try not to be a control freak and let the characters
write the story after all, it’s their life.
So
if you’re a reader who likes to hear the voice of your characters
and share their POV I’m your next favorite writer LOL
Just
a little something about me I’m a retired Actress, Director,
Choreographer, who discovered her real passion in life, was writing.
I have two sons Zachary and Garette I also have two doggie kids Hazel
and Harry. My free time is spent in the garden enjoying nature,
decorating, and writing. I would love to have feedback from readers I
think we are always curious about what people think of our work.
So,
here is my suggestion get a great glass of red wine, start the bubble
bath grab a couple of chocolate covered caramels with sea salt and
enjoy a good book. I hope you love and enjoy reading the characters
with minimally twice the enjoyment I had writing them to life.
May
you enjoy all the bad boys of romance with none of the pain.

Shantal Hiatt Sessions and LDS author’s Interview

What is your typical day like?

My youngest son is still in school, so we’re up early trying to get him out the door. I try to get my exercise in the morning, like a good girl, and then schedule what needs to be done for my family. I’m not a full-time writer—yet—although I’d like to be. After that, I feel like I can sit down and write. Although, some days, I get so wrapped up in my story, I barely acknowledge anyone around me, which I know they find extremely annoyingJ

Been there done that. 🙂 Do you write with music or not?

I love music, but I also love to sing, and I’ve found that I can’t sing and write at the same time. Somehow, that combination of multi-tasking doesn’t work well for me. Usually, I don’t write with music unless it helps me with a scene I’m working on. Epic battle scenes require some serious Lindsey Stirling playing in the background. Sometimes, music lyrics help me channel the romantic aspect in a book better.

I have found that too. What is the title of your book? (more…)
