Stereotypes Career Athlete

I despise stereotypes. A gay man can be a macho athlete, or he can be an interior designer or any career in between.

- Lori Foster

Right Go Annoy

I couldn't write a female who fell to pieces every time something didn't go right in her life. She would just annoy me too much.

- Lori Foster

Learn Loud Having

Having kids is the deal-breaker on shyness! Once you have a baby, you learn to speak up loud and clear to protect them, defend them, and encourage them. I have three sons, so I've experienced that in triplicate.

Perfect Young Arizona

After 'A Perfect Storm' came out, I heard from a young reader, who had suffered a similar background as 'Arizona,' that I had helped her to find peace. That was the most amazing thing in the world to me.

- Lori Foster

Muse Very Guided

I'm truly, 100% guided by the characters and my Muse. If one of the characters suddenly decided to do something very different, I'd just go with it. It's much easier to let the Muse drive than for me to try to steer.

- Lori Foster

Alive Works I Write

How it works for me is that a scene comes to mind, usually a scene between the hero and heroine, that depicts the emotional conflict. From that scene, the characters come alive for me. I don't do a lot of preplanning in any way when I write.

Love Feet Here

I love the water. Everything about it. Smelling the humidity in the air, seeing the mist rise in the morning, feeling the dew-wet grass on my bare feet. I love watching the fish jump and the geese land. We even have an eagle here that circles every so often.

- Lori Foster

Think I Think Very

I think it's very important to support those who can't help themselves - children, animals - and especially to do so in your own neighborhood.

- Lori Foster

Extended Family Pets Part

The charity work is just a part of what I do. Like... I make time to clean my house, to care for my pets, to visit my extended family, because those things are important to me. Same with helping others.

- Lori Foster

Blind Injustice Pets

Now, and in the future, my focus is entirely on pets and children. I'm not a person who can turn a blind eye to injustice against them.

- Lori Foster

PC Parked Noon

I'm up before 6, but then I'm parked in front of the PC until noon.

- Lori Foster

Office Used Had

I don't need the water to be inspired. My stories inspire me, not the location of where I'm parked. And good thing, since I've had to finish books in airports, in the RV we used to have, the lake house, while on vacation, at home, in the kitchen when my office PC was on the fritz.

- Lori Foster

Love Cruel Could

I definitely could not write a character that was cruel or unconcerned with animal welfare. For me, not just as a writer but for the person I am, I love animals.

- Lori Foster

Love Enjoy Works

I enjoy talking to groups who are interested in the writing process or the industry. I never teach - because truthfully, I don't know how it all works; it just does. Sort of magic-like. But I love to share my experiences and perspectives.

- Lori Foster

Own United Here

We tend to think of human trafficking as a foreign issue, not something that could happen here in our own back yards. But it's a fast-growing problem in the United States, in every area, with no real defined demographic.

- Lori Foster

Independent Pets I Write

The men I write can be intense, quiet, outspoken and outrageous, deadly or fun... but I would never waste time on a hero who wasn't honorable, who didn't protect those who couldn't protect themselves, who didn't value children and pets, who wasn't independent and unselfish.

- Lori Foster

Uncomfortable Sure Made

I would never write something that made me uncomfortable. I'm not sure it's even possible.

- Lori Foster

Love Cops Features

The 'Love Undercover' series features two cops, a street rat, and a construction worker as the lead heroes.

- Lori Foster

Had Hoped Another

There are plenty of secondary characters that I had always hoped to write, but I don't know if it will ever happen. The way contracts work, if you leave one publishing house for another, the characters tend to stay with the previous publishing house.

- Lori Foster

Young Read Before

I read 'Pushing the Limit' and 'Dare You To' by Katie McGarry. Fantastic stuff. I had never read young adult before, but now I'm a believer.
