Falling for MonaLisa… #AmWriting #ScorpionTail #RockMyWorld #ASMSG

I learn something new about my characters every day!

MonaLisa, for instance, is very poetic with her dialogue. Maybe because she’s a songwriter. I don’t know. She says things that come out like lyrics. And I promise you, I’m not writing her like this on purpose! She whispers in my ear and her words make their way into a scene.

I read over something I wrote and be like, “when the hell did I write that?”

It’s baffling!



“Try as you will to shatter me. In the end, it would be you crumbling at my feet…”


“I refuse to let her drag you down. If you’re going to hell with anyone, its gonna be me.”


“How ironic is this? The snake has the nerve to call the scorpion venomous.”


With every scene she’s in, I’m falling more in love with her.

Character Haiku ~ Ukemi Hyori aka Blaze #IAN1 #ASMSG #DragonQueen #UrbanFantasy

A couple years ago, I promised you guys I would post a character haiku at least every week. Well, my writing schedule got tight, and my blog suffered for it. Haikus are very few words, but they are not easy to create. At least not for me. 🙂 My goal was to embody the soul of a character through this beautiful poetry form and today I’m going to give it another go. Except, I’ll try to post one every month. I have a lot of characters to introduce so there will be many haikus coming your way.

Today’s Haiku is about Blaze. If you’ve read the Dragon Queen Series, then you’ve already met her. Blaze is an earthly bound battle angel, Andausian, and a member of special ops team in the military. Her real name is Ukemi Hyori. She was born in Korea and raised in Japan. Like many of the guardians ordained to protect the Dragon Queen, she had to suffer death and loss to come closer to her faith and her destiny.

Battle angels born in human form are gifted with a special ability, sometimes more than one. Blaze has the ability to manipulate and brandish fire as a weapon. And not just any fire. The Flames of Heaven. She’s a lovable sweetheart, but she’s deadly when crossed.

Her cousin, Tajaé, who happens to be a black panther shifter, was introduced in the Dragon Queen novelette, Shifting Darkness.

Hopefully, I’ll have a drawing of her to share with you soon. 😉 Now, onto the good stuff.

Haiku is a Japanese poetry form. A haiku uses just a few words to capture a moment and create a picture in the reader’s mind. It’s like a tiny window into a scene much larger than itself.

Traditionally, haiku is written in three lines, with five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line, and five syllables in the third line. Haikus are usually based on nature, or the scenery around you, but this Haiku is using a character as the focal point.

I posted this one some years back, and since it describes this character so well, I’d like to post it again.

Character Haiku ~ Blaze from the Dragon Queen Series

A blaze awakens

Heat cascades through her body

Flames engulf the night



Put Your Mouth on Me #Poetry #Erotica #EroticRomance #Romance #IAN1 #ASMSG

MouthIt’s impossible to breathe until you put your mouth on me

I’m suffocating in sheer lust

Every inch of my body throbs…



An unbearable heat builds within my core

You rest those seductive dark eyes on me…

Looking oh-so-fine as your chocolate tone glistens under the artificial light…

Thick ribbons of ecstasy dance between us

I don’t need to say it, because you already know

You sense it…

Taste it…

The arousal soaking into my panties…

Sliding down between my thighs…

You lick your lips, giving me but a glimpse of your pink tongue…

I want it, exploring the most intimate regions of my body…

I want it, inside of me…

Save me from this torturous need

Baby, can’t you see…

I can’t breathe until you put your mouth on me

Happy Hump Day!


Seduce Me (Part 1) #Poetry #ASMSG


Seduce me

Hold me close

Whisper sweet nothings in my ear…

As I stir in my heated passion for you

Seduce me

Run your hands over my naked flesh…

Make me simmer, make me crave your lips on mine

As my body shudders against you

Seduce me

Make me forget where I am, make it not matter

Slide your fingers over the most sensitive parts of my body

As I desperately whisper your name

Seduce me…
