Where Do Ideas Come From and Advice for New Writers

The creative process is mostly inexplicable—one day, an idea sprouts in my mind, and I think, This would make a good story; I’m going to tell it. Other times, I hear a client, friend, or relative utter a single phrase, and boom, another story is born. I owe my creativity to a very unstoppable mind. I have attention deficit, which makes me think a lot—often about several different subjects all at the same time—but also, I’m very inspired by people. I love to observe people. Human beinigs are so complex, so full of stories, and no one person thinks exactly like another. You can find a slew of totally different opinions about the exact same subject from a variety of people.

I’ve been a lawyer for thirty years, and my profession inspires me a lot. When you are a lawyer, you are like a shrink; your client bring their problems to you, and you need to find the solutions. It’s exactly like writing a thriller—you have to plan carefully in order to produce a good, mysterious story.

A good writer is always an avid reader and an excellent researcher. The more we research, the more knowledge we have, and that brings new perspectives and opens our hearts and minds to new concepts of life. A closed mind can’t write well, in my opinion. Reality is made up of good and bad, happiness and sadness, good days and dark days. Writing is the same, and art always imitate life. A narrow mind doesn’t have much to imitate. So, I recommend a writer opens his or her eyes and starts admiring the world. Poetry is everywhere, and you will find inspiration inside all creatures and all ways of life.

A last piece of advice for writers: write to please yourself. Think about what you would like to read in a book, start there, and you will have a great work in the end.

Although Ninon has lost faith in love and God, life will show her surprises can be found around every corner. France, the United States, Spain, Austria, and Argentina present the backdrops for an epic tale of people trying to adapt to a world in turmoil—one that’s filled with secrets and surprises.

Balancing life and writing

To write is a passion, and writing is my life.

My world is very crazy sometimes. I’m an active lawyer, I have many clients, and I have a husband and my dogs who need my attention. I also have friends who need a shoulder, sometimes, or just to spend some laughing together, and I can’t simply stop everything and write. For a long time, I suffered, trying to find a way to balance everything.

As writing is a pleasure for me, my time to dream and live another life, I used to feel guilty whenever I set aside my other responsibilities to write. On the other hand, I used to feel guilty when I was doing other things and was not putting my ideas and my stories down on paper, because I was afraid they would get lost.

Organization helped me. I start to organize my time, determined to have it all. I always kept an agenda for my legal activities, so I decided to start keeping one for my entire life.

I messed up in the beginning because I divided my time between working as a lawyer and writing, and I failed to factor in any “play” time. But then I realized how important it was to maintain my connections with other people who enrich my life. My friends and my personal life are very important to help me build my characters and to have stability to write.

Life is about all sorts of things—work, love, playing, laughing, experimenting new things, and experiencing all these things is what I believe makes me a better writer, one capable of writing about the human soul. A little bit of understanding about the importance of things and bringing some order to the chaos allowed me to become a better writer and to accomplish all the tasks with a happier attitude.

Writing is not about isolation; writing is about living.

When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients, to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.

He seemed shy. She sensed it in his sweet smile, the one only shy people use when they want to be accepted. That was her mistake—she believed in the assurance the shy pass to others that they are gentle, calm, agreeable and pose no risks.

“The question I tried to ask before was what is normal sexuality and what is not?”

The way he spoke showed great interest. He looked her right in the eye while awaiting her response and reaction.

“I think I know where you want to go. Who defines normality? Who has the authority to do it? You don’t have a medical background, do you? You’re apparently unfamiliar with diagnostic standards. Is that correct?”

His little smile said “bingo.” Then he said, “Your diagnosis is right on the money. I’m a lawyer. I really don’t have the slightest idea about diagnostic standards.”

This truly surprised her. A lawyer? At a sexology workshop, she would have expected a psychologist or a therapist or a gay person trying to understand himself. But a lawyer?

“And what brings a lawyer to a sexual disorder workshop?”

“I’m here because I need to build a defense in a case involving sex games that led to a woman’s death. I need to understand the subject better so I can do my job.”
