Marilyn is a public relations consultant in Atlanta. She's a member of Romance Writers of America and serves on the board of Georgia Romance Writers (GRW) as editor of The Galley, GRW’s online newsletter. She writes humorous women’s fiction and romantic suspense, including “The Colonoscopy Club,” which finaled in the GRW Unpublished Maggie Awards for Excellence in 2005 in the Single Title category and “The Edger,” which won first place in the Suspense Romance Category of the 2010 Ignite the Flame Contest, sponsored by Central Ohio Fiction Writers RWA Chapter. What’s unique about my writing? “I like to laugh so I try to inject humor into everything I write. I tend to feature older heroines, because let’s face it, we’re not getting any younger.”

Watching the sunrise over the ocean and staring mindlessly at the swooping seagulls and stately cranes stepping out along the shoreline is the closest thing to heaven for me. Suddenly, my attention is diverted by a school of dolphins frolicking in the waves. I could watch them forever. I believe spotting a dolphin is a sign of good luck, so I always make a wish when I see one.
Do I find the nature around me distracting? Yes, but distractions can be a good thing for a writer. They free your mind and lift your spirit, so ideas can flow from your subconscious. I get some of my best ideas daydreaming or relaxing on my balcony looking out at the ocean. In fact, I came up with a fantastic idea for a new supernatural short story when I was watching the sunrise on my last visit.
So while the conventional wisdom for writers is “butt in chair,” “nose to the grindstone,” and “stay focused,” I temper that with this advice: “Let your mind wander.” After all, it’s summer!
