Blog Tour: My Writing Process

Thank you to Miriam Newman on inviting me into this tour!

DeniseAlicea_Consoli#792721What am I working on?

I’m working on several projects that I am wishing that I had more time for right now. One is a time travel romance dealing with a magical valentine set during Wold War two England.


How does my work differ from others of its genre?

I’d like to think that every writer has a different voice and a way of telling things. I have mine.


Why do I write what I do?

I love writing because it’s a great outlet for me. I also love reading because it’s an escape for me so I hope it’s a great escape for those who read my work.


Check out my friends interviews as well.

Miriam Newman’s published works range from contemporary fantasy romance to fantasy historical, futuristic, science fiction and historical romance. You can find her blog

Changing Hearts Through Writing

I was really touched lately by a autograph request and I was so touched that I had to share.

“Hello my name is Hillary and I am a huge fan of yours! You are my idol and I look up to you so much I love all of your books. I have overcome so many obstacles in my life such as ADHD, bullying, having a learning disability. A lot of people told me back in school that i wouldn’t be able to make it through school because I was different. I look up to you because you are different too and you embrace it. It would mean the world to me if you could send me an autograph”.

I wrote back to her telling her how touched I was and gave her some advice about the bullying. After all I myself had been bullied when younger and understood where she came from. I also managed to ask for an address where I could send her some goodies. I was happy that a short story really touched her the way it did and gave her some peace in a day that probably was chaotic. What I’ve noticed with this new generation of kids is that there are so many are bullied for stupid reasons. People are different, we come in different colors, shapes, and styles yet we haven’t learned to just deal and move on! No one should be discriminated for being different, we all bleed the same way.

Please join me in signing up for The Bully Project, the project and film is an eye opener into our society as it stands with children and bullying.
