Monday Mayhem – Hopping along

Posted on Apr 7, 2014 by Margaret Ethridge   2 Comments | Posted in Blog

It’s bunny season, so it seems only right that I participate in a blog hop, right?

The fabulous Karen Stivali tagged me for the hop. Be sure to check her answers as well! Here goes:

1) What are you working on? At the moment, I’m writing a battle of the sexes type romance between a college football coach and the women’s basketball coach. At the moment I’m calling it Full Court Press. It’ll probably end up in Maggie’s wheelhouse. Seems like everything does these days. 🙂


2) How does your work differ from others in the genre? I think the biggest difference is that I’m not afraid to feature heroes and heroines who are a little more…seasoned than most. Yes, age does leave your characters at the mercy of gravity, but I think age adds depth to the character’s motivations. And to the steamy scenes as well.


3) Why do you write what you write? I guess this is where I fall back on the old ‘write what you know’ bit. Living inside the head of a nubile, young virgin would be a bit of a stretch for me at this point in my life.


4) How does your writing process work? Ha! I don’t really have much of a process. I am a pantser by nature, but have learned to use a loose sort of outline to keep my works on track. Other than that, all I require would be some background music and the occasional box of Cheez-Its.

Now I’m tagging Linda Rettstat, Bobbye Terry, and Evelyn Jules. Watch their blogs for their take on the same questions!

Happy Monday, my friends!

    Ooh, guess I better hop to it then! 😉 Love your responses, Mags! I so agree that age adds so much depth to a character. Absolutely cannot wait to read your battle of the sexes story!!!

    I love that you feature mature protagonists. That is one of the reasons I am so draw to your books. I totally get you on the YA or NA. As you prefer to write what you know, I prefer to read what I know. Young adults just don’t do it for me. I’ve read a few that blew me away but by far, I much prefer the mature adults.
