In the Spotlight with Tricia Andersen

Battling Writer’s Block

It’s deadline time again and I’m sitting here staring at the screen. It’s happened again. Writer’s Block. Even with an interview I get struck with it.

I’ve been an author for five years now and I’ve heard many different theories on Writer’s Block. I know of writers who believe that it’s just a myth. I don’t know if they’ve ever experienced that cold dread of an empty mind and a blank document on the screen staring at them. If they’ve never had that happen to them I am envious. And a little perturbed. I might just have to find these people. I wonder how much they know about werewolves and MMA…

Anyway, I digress.

To me, Writer’s Block is very real. Fortunately, it only comes to make my life a living hell when I have a deadline looming overhead (like I do right now). Maybe it’s the pressure to churn out a book just as good as the last. Maybe it’s just the sheer exhaustion of wearing a thousand hats all at the same time.

All I do know is that I’m staring at an empty page, my mind is a total blank and I’m pretty sure my muse is off having a party without me instead of doing his job.

So thank you to Terri for having me back. I appreciate it so much. Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get back to writing.

Oh, wait…Facebook!

The Overview

Synopsis: Caleb Hallow doesn’t need anyone. All he needs is to dominate in the MMA cage and become world champion. His plans are derailed when he wakes up with a mysterious tattoo of his ancestors after a one-night stand with his opponent’s ex-girlfriend, Meg Riley. Sharing the mark with her joins them as mates for eternity. Can Caleb deal with Meg for the rest of his life? Can he keep her safe from his past as he falls deeply in love with her? And will she stay by him when she finds out he is actually a werewolf?

It was just a fling, a chance to get revenge on her cheating ex. At least that’s what Meg Riley tries to convince herself. But the indescribable pull that draws her to the dark, dangerous Caleb Hallow tells her differently. Although she is furious when she finds the strange tattoo on her back after their night together, and even though he tells her some convoluted story about him being a werewolf, she can’t stay away from him. She can’t stop herself from falling for him. When her ex threatens Caleb’s life, how far will Meg go to save him? Will she be willing to sacrifice her life for his?
