Hi! Thanks for having me back!
There’s been a lot of debate over whether or not it’s better to be a plotter or
a pantser. I like to think that I’m a bit of a hybrid. When I first started
writing I would begin a story with characters and a vague idea for the plot and
then run with it to see where it would take me. Things have changed a little now
that I’m writing more and at a quicker pace. Now, in the initial stages of a
book, I write out the general plot and main points in the story and fit it into
a schedule that I do my best to adhere to. At least, to a point. But there is
still something to be said about the mystery and adventure that comes with the
unravelling of a story and the characters as I write. Part of the fun of writing
for me is just that, the discovery. So, when I get the whiff of a submission
call that makes my muse sit up and take notice, I just have to run with it.
That’s what happened with CLAIMING ZARA. My publisher
put out a call for a ménage short for an anthology and an idea just popped into
my head. After my first attempt at writing a ménage, SINS IN THE SAND, I knew I
wanted to write another one. So it wasn’t a surprise when a story with similar
base elements, namely a strong heroine and two men who are perfect for her,
shoved its way to the forefront of my mind demanding to be written.
Zara is stuck in a terrible marriage and is looking for a way out. Living a
separate life from her husband, she had turned to two very different men for an
escape while trying to keep up the farce that her life isn’t falling apart. Not
easy when she’s in the public eye and her husband has all but thrown away the
pretence. The moment her situation changes freeing her from the shackles of her
life, Zara fears that she will lose the carefully balanced relationship she has
with the two men. She cares about them both as much as they cherish her but she
knows they’re possessive and each wants her as his own. Figuring out where to go
from there isn’t going to be easy, but she’s determined to find a way to keep
them both in her life.
The story took me only a few days to write, which threw my schedule off a tiny
bit but I could hardly be upset when it was so interesting to write and explore
the characters and their dynamics; it made it all the more enjoyable to put to
So, I guess what I’m saying is stay open to new ideas. Don’t bog yourself down
too much with strict rules and rigid timelines. Know your bounds but allow
yourself to explore outside the confines. You never know what you might come up
with when you free up your mind and just run with inspiration.
Read. Escape. Fall in love.
An inveterate traveller, Kait has set foot on three continents and has the
other four on her bucket list (yes, even Antarctica). Until she can see them
all, she writes romances that take readers to far flung locales, often to places
she’s been or hopes to one day go. For now, she’s settled in England where she
spends most of her time plotting, scribbling ideas on every available scrap of
paper and trying out dialogue on her cat.
