Joining the Baton Blog Hop~

The lovely, talented authoress of The Wicked Series CJ Burright invited me to join the Baton Blog Hop this week.  The first book in the series is coming soon! I hope I'll be a stop on your book tour, CJ. :)

The blog hop sounded like fun, so I jumped right in. I just blog about the four questions listed here and then pass the "baton" to three more writers. :)
What am I working on?
 Oh boy! I decided to tackle a story in a steampunk setting. I've never written steampunk before, but I've done plenty of fantasy. I'm always looking for something new to me, so it's only natural. I like branching out and this time I'm having a ball. It's still in the plotting/planning stage, but it's such a fun mix of Agatha Christie-style mystery and Indiana Jones treasure hunting. I'm loving it. Check back on the blog for updates! This is definitely going to be finished this year.
How does my work differ from others of its genre?
Hmm, not exactly sure, but I do think it will be unique. I don't want to give too much away though. It's about a young woman and a devious plot and an archaeological adventure and change. How's that for mysterious?? Oh, and there's pirates!
Why do I write what I do?
That's a tough question. I normally write stories that I find fun. Writing is my escape and I have no interest in escaping into worlds without fun. That said, I do sometimes write about heavier subjects because I love exploring themes. Sometimes tragedy is the best way to do that. I guess I just write about things I have something to say about.
How does my writing process work?
I've learned that I work best with a well developed outline. If I have a solid idea where I'm going when I start, I can always finish. The ending may not be what I originally planned and that doesn't bother me. It's just that I need a clear idea to begin with. After that, I'll go where ever it takes me. Any brave reader is welcome along!  Be sure to visit to see where I've been. :)
*gingerly passes the baton*
Be sure to check out these lovely lady bloggers next week on May 5~ I wasn't able to tag three writers, but I did get a pair of twins!
