I kind of got behind on my posting this week, sad to say. I try to post on Wednesdays, but here it is Friday and I’m still scrounging for a good idea to share…
So I thought I’d answer some questions about my novel-in-progress, a.k.a, Doctor and King.
What is Doctor and King about? It is a real-world re-imagining of the Sleeping Beauty story, told from the perspective of a young king with insecurity issues and a penchant for mixing healing tonics.
How close are you to finishing? I’m about one inch away from finishing the first draft. I’m hoping to have it revised and edited and ready to release by the end of the year.
What is the hardest thing about writing this novel? Probably one of the hardest things about writing Doctor and King is that I’m still getting used to writing in first person. Most of my work over the past ten years has been third person.
What do you like most about this novel? Ha ha, I love that the main character is halfway based off my husband. That really makes it kind of funny to write, because his personality is way different from mine. So it really stretches my mind, trying to think from his perspective.
If you have a question you’d like answered, whether about Doctor and King, or about writing in general (I love helping out young writers!) feel free to send me a message.

This sounds interesting! I’ve not read many fairytale re-tellings, but I’d certainly read this one!
Glad it catches your interest! (I haven’t read any fairy tale rewrites either).
