Being a Gemini Can Be Double Trouble
Since this is the first post on my Joyful Noise blog page and also the first one as Lora Lee on the Insecure Writers Support Group blog hop, I guess introductions are in order. I’m thrilled to be here today and look forward to seeing you here again.
As Lora Lee, I write a fun, warm cozy mystery series, Joyful Noise, for Bell Bridge Books. The first book, Bringing in the Thieves, is set in the world of choirs, glee clubs and the gentle shenanigans of a close-knit church community and is a mid-November release. Cover reveal coming soon.
As Loralee Lillibridge, my other, more romantic persona, I write contemporary romances set in the Texas Hill Country. My first one was Accidental Hero, a Special Edition for Harlequin, followed by All That Matters and Hill Country Man for Tell-Tale Publishers.
So how do I deal with two sides to my Gemini writing personality? Not easily, I assure you. There are days when I ask myself, “Why am I doing this?” The fact that I’m in my “Golden Years” adds yet another side to my identity as a writer – my writing speed is much slower than it used to be. My brain functions a little slower too. Jumping from writing romantic, deeply passionate love scenes to solving a whodunit filled with quirky characters requires a huge leap of faith and a giant stretch of imagination. Talk about a work-out!
