Lisa Ladew lives in Northern Idaho reigning supreme as queen of her castle full of men: two sons and a hubby she’s been hitched to for a thousand crazy years.
When Lisa hit the fabulous age of 40, ideas she’d never had before started to pop into her head and, with no previous experience but being armed and fully loaded with an incredibly vivid imagination, she jumped into the indie writing pool with both feet.
With a new baby in tow and squeezing in the manuscript of Edge of the Heat 1 during nap times, her dedication to trying something new and her determination to craft a truly amazing and fascinating story paid off. And the rest is history…or shall we call it “herstory”? 🙂
She’s been dubbed the “Soft Porn Diva” by fans due to her super hot story lines and she’s never met a twist she didn’t like. “Boring,” “ordinary,” and “normal” aren’t even in her vocabulary. Nope. So if you like twisty, sexy and exciting romantic suspense AND shifter books – her One True Mate series will practically melt your eReader, it’s so hot! Guaranteed! – give one of her books a try. You won’t regret it!
Where do my ideas come from?
If you’ve read Edge of the Heat 1, I can tell you that much of that book actually happened. Someone said, (paraphrasing here) “Show me an author’s first book, and I’ll show you that author’s soul.” So true for me!
I was an army medic for many years, a paramedic, a volunteer firefighter, and a police radio dispatcher/911 calltaker. My husband was also an army medic, and a police officer. So I have the emergency medical services dialed in, or at least I used to, lol.
I still draw heavily on that past and that knowledge while I write and I craft my anti-formulaic plots, even in my shifter series. Other than that, I walk or ride my bike and muse what-if questions until an idea falls into my head, and then I build on it. Does the idea that falls into my head have an origin other than my history and the synapses in my brain? I’m not sure. It might, or it might not. But unless I decide to write a story about it, I won’t waste any more time thinking about it. I have more interesting things to ponder!
