Do you need noise in the background while you write, or complete silence?
Silence, although once I get writing, I have the ability to tune out a lot of noise. I know many writers write to music, but I would find it distracting—or I wouldn’t notice it at all.
Sometimes I need silence. Sometimes I need music. The level of quiet and the type of music (anything from opera to rock to country to dance) depends upon the scene or story or how I’m feeling that day. Usually this only matters when I’m writing the beginning of a scene. Once I’m immersed in the story, a freight train could run through my writing space and I wouldn’t notice. This is how dinners burn (often) and the hubby gains approval on tasks I might not be thrilled about (“If you say nothing, I’ll assume you’re okay with me buying this wrecked sports car on eBay.”).
It doesn’t matter to me. I can write with the television off or with it on. I usually have kids coming in and out of my room, talking or arguing, so I’ve learned to adapt. There have been few circumstances where I’ve needed complete silence just so I could get a scene worked out. It’s not often when that happens, but when it does I need the room cleared and television off or down low.
I have to have background noise. Silence has always grated on my nerves and makes me feel anxious. I’m not sure why but I’ve been that way since childhood. I need noise. During the day, I’m writing while kiddo runs amok so music turned down low often helps me concentrate and drown out the Daniel Tiger theme song…

Grabbed, Book Three
To escape her father’s debt to a loan shark, Dizzy seeks refuge in the upcoming Grab. She’d rather belong to one of those terrifying sky warriors from the battleship Valiant than to the sleazy criminal who wants her as his plaything.
The years of constant war haven’t been kind to highly decorated sniper Venom. Only the promise of earning a wife kept him going through deadly battles. Catching and collaring Dizzy fills him with incredible hope. Finally he has a woman of his own, a mate to love—and bind and adorn with his ropes.
After a brazen Splinter attack, the Shadow Force uncovers secrets about Dizzy’s late mother that entangle her in a web of deceit. To save Venom, her father and an operative named Terror, Dizzy digs deep and risks it all.
Venom refuses to stand idly by while Dizzy’s haunted past threatens the future they’re trying to build. He finally has a reason for living—and he’s not giving her up.

Loving Dangerously, Book Three
Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. Supposedly Sonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.
Rasha, captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin again.
