My husband is sick. My daughter is sick. I’ve got that tickle in the back of my throat that indicates that I’m next. But seriously, it’s 2 days until June. Why are we still getting colds?
Although, admittedly, I live in California where, with this drought, we didn’t really have a winter, so in fact, there was no good time to get sick.
I’d love to tie this in to writing, like, “Don’t write things that jar people out of the story, like getting colds at the end of May. Even though it happens all the time, people will stop and think about it and pull them out of the story.”
Except, you know, whatever. I’m tired and the baby’s sniffling sadly in my lap, so I’m going to go.
Skye became the black sheep of her university’s literature department when she announced that what she really wanted to do for her senior thesis, instead of writing a thought-provoking essay on the deeper meanings of James Joyce, was to write a romance novel. They gave in, however, and the rest is history. As a result, Skye learned more than she ever thought possible about the inner workings of the publishing industry and off and on, given her schedule, pursued publication of both her senior thesis and other novels she’s written along the way.
Skye has many names and almost as many personalities to go with them. As Melinda Skye, she writes Romantic Suspense, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult. As Skye Forbes, she may (or may not) have saved the world a few times over. In her real life, under another different name, Skye is a lawyer. And yes, if you ask nicely, she might help keep you out of jail. Or put you in it. It depends on her mood.
Skye lives in California, with her husband, brand new daughter, and menagerie of animals.
