My writing time is from about 6:30 AM to 1:00 PM. About noon, my creativity level starts to plummet. What do I do when I'm not creating? I read, do dishes, read, do laundry, read, etc. I take walks and occasionally a short road trip. I have an occasional lunch or dinner with friends or family. Can you say introvert?

ViperMoon by Lee Roland (Earth Witches #1)Occasionally, I'll take a longer trip or attend a conference. Conferences are great places to meet people who like the same things you do. Writing and reading. But you can also sit back and watch and learn, too.

What do I not do? I don't watch television unless there's some major event on the news. Living in Florida, a.k.a. hurricane central, the weather gets my attention occasionally. Travel and nature shows are okay, too. I don't watch reality shows that are so far from real they become comedies. Most dramas are not that dramatic. You stare at a screen and see other people's ideas. With a book, you can let your imagination provide your own personal show.

I don't shop unless I have absolutely no alternative. My favorite clothes and shoes are those that are comfortable rather than make a fashion statement. My only statement regarding high heels would be to fall flat on my face in public. Then someone would declare, “You idiot. What were you thinking?”

Vengeance Moon by Lee Roland (Earth Witches #2)What else? Oh, I'm retired. Of course, I don't have any money, but I don't have to worry about a time clock, dress code, or what the boss thinks. I don't have to think about a professional image except when I'm at a Con, meeting an editor or agent. When I wake up and it's cold or rainy out, I snuggle in and go back to sleep. Yes, that's my creativity time, but when you don't punch a time clock, you can create tomorrow when the sun is shining.

Here's the scoop on VICIOUS MOON:

Vicious Moon by Lee Roland (Earth Witches #3)“A powerful witch might live a long time, but a single well-placed bullet could change that. While my preferred weapon was magic, I was not averse to shooting anyone or anything offering my sister or me harm.”

Ex-soldier and earth witch Nyx Ianira is working as a PI in San Francisco when she sees the last thing she ever wants to see: the Sisters of Justice—the mysterious earth witch police force. A Triad of Sisters usually means an execution mission, but the Sisters’ only goal is to capture and escort Nyx across the country.

Nyx is badly needed back in Twitch Crossing, Georgia, the place she ran away from ten years ago to escape the stiff rules and duties of being a true witch. She wanted a life of her own. Now she’s being dragged back to her swampy hometown because another life is in danger: Her little sister is missing, and Nyx is the only one who can track her down in Duivel, Missouri.

But the key to finding her may lie with dark and tempting Etienne—a sinister criminal with a fearsome reputation, a ruthless attitude, and a total immunity to magic...
