Are you a panster or a plotter?
I’m both. Most of my stories are pantser, but there are a few that I completely plotted. If I do plot though, I leave enough room and an open mind so that I can change things if needed.
 
Do you believe in Writer’s Block? If so, how do you kick its arse?
I do and I hate it. LOL. I get it often enough and it usually happens when I overthink things. To get over it, sometimes I will work on something else to get my mind off of it, or I will sprint with a friend. When I sprint, I write without thinking and can a lot of times push through that block.
 
What book is your comfort read on a bad day? The one you go back to reread over and over. 
I have a few. FastTrack By Julie Garwood, The Virgin Romance Novelist by Meghan Quinn, and Found You by Dahlia Donovan. I love reading a good love story with a. happy ending when I’m having a bad day.
 
Describe your perfect writing space: 
I love a lot of light where I can see the sky. I’m currently designing my writing office, so right now I wander from my bedroom to the living room to the outside deck at my house. Eventually, I will have a writing space with a chaise lounge, lots of natural light, and bookshelves with all of the books I’ve collected over the years and another to hold my writer stuff including books and swag.
 
Do you write your title first or story first?
Half and half. LOL. Sometimes I have a story first and sometimes I know what the title will be before I ever write the story.
 
And lastly, write a one or two paragraph flash fiction inspired by the last photo or text you got on your phone:
The last text I got was from my best friend talking about my nieces (her daughters) and how they are doing…
Family had always been important to him, something that grounded him and people who supported him without question. It didn’t matter if it was when he came out or when he wanted to try new things. Even when he’d decided to leave everything behind and start over, they’d only asked if he was certain. He’d never been surer, and when Caleb told them that, they stood beside him 100% and never tried to talk him out of it. Caleb left his job, moved from New York to Indiana, and started a new career that had nothing to do with his previous life. It was a big change. Of course it wasn’t only the move. Moving from being a stock broker to a baker. Talk about 180 degrees.
And now they stood behind him and supported him as he took the next step into his future. Walking down the aisle, his best friend and siblings stood at the end to his left, and on the other side of the aisle, stood people he considered friends and family. But it was the man in front of him that meant the most to Caleb. He never expected to find love, but Issac landed in his life in a cloud of flour – quite literally. Today, Caleb’s family would grow and Issac would forever be part of that.

Getting sick changed her and her life, but it also opened doors that she never thought about. Today, even though she cannot do as much as she once could, she can still write.

Levi Cox left it all behind to go to school in California, but nothing could prepare him for what he discovers when he gets there. Between the university screwing up his living arrangements, the weird meddling old woman who runs the boarding house, and the fellow student who instantly catches his eye, life in Cali is more than he expected, and he isn’t sure he’s ready for any of it. College was supposed to be an adventure, but this might be more than Levi can handle.
Nathan Orion wants to have fun. That’s what he lives for and it’s exactly what his college years are supposed to be about. He’s happy with living the single life and being carefree…that is until the new student at his grandmother’s boarding house crashes into his life. Now he’s been recruited to show the new guy around, and if Nathan has his way, it won’t be just on-campus.
Will there be more, or is this only an illusion? Two men thrown together, not expecting anything, but possibly finding so much more than an off-campus setup.
The setup is only the beginning.

Levi:

Right now, I wanted to drop my bags, fall into bed, and put my feet up. And a tank of oxygen might help too. ‘How did people in L.A. breathe?’ I wondered to himself more than once as I walked from building to building on campus, and then again on my excursion to this boarding house.

Made it to the door without collapsing. That in itself was an achievement. Raising my hand to knock, the door swung open before it made contact with the hard surface. And unfortunately, the stranger who had jerked it open, hadn’t been watching where he was going and barreled straight into me. It was then my legs had decided to quit on me and I fell to the ground with him on top of me.

Maybe it was the weather or the exhaustion—or it could have been those grey eyes hovering over me, captivating me—but damn, I could feel my dick getting hard as he struggled to get up and ground himself against me. My only saving grace was that he got up before he noticed. Pulling me to my feet and pushing me slightly to the side, he mumbled an apology and then left me standing there as he rushed down the stairs and into a waiting car.

“California hospitality at its finest,” I muttered under my breath. So far, I wasn’t impressed and transferring after this semester was beginning to look better and better. Bruised ego, bruised tailbone, and legs of jello did not make for a happy Levi no matter how captivating the stranger was.

“Don’t mind him. He’s just a little pissy because I wouldn’t give him what he wanted. I swear that boy is too spoiled for his own good. Then again, I take some responsibility for that. Kind of my fault for indulging him.”

I turned my head and found an old woman with her hair dyed yellow. Not blonde…it was canary yellow. I squeezed my eyes shut to temporarily shut out the blinding color and focused on what she said. What was she talking about? Could it be that she was his sugar mama? I’d heard of such things happening from T.V. and magazines, but I didn’t realize things like that were real. I’d never met someone like that. “Ma’am?” I asked for clarification because maybe I was wrong.

Maria Vickers currently lives in St. Louis, MO with her pug, Spencer Tracy. She has always had a passion for writing and after she became disabled, she decided to use writing as her escape. She loves to write romance of all kinds because she is a dreamer and hopeless romantic at heart.
