Playing with Fire

Devika says,

I love checking out for spectacular photos and stunning art. As I usually react powerfully to visual writing prompts, I knew that sooner or later one picture would spark a story. That is exactly what happened with “Playing with Fire”. I saw some wonderful digital art / Photoshop manipulation, and fell in love with its possibilities. From then on, the story wrote itself inside my head, driven by Felicia with her fire magic and Joshua with his ice magic. With fire playing the central role, I decided to embark on a whole series, so this is Book 1 of “4 Elements of Love”. As my first foray into writing paranormal romance, this novel is very close to my heart. It was a lot of fun but also a challenge to write – and now I have the heroine insisting that she wants a sequel one day because her story isn’t finished despite the happy end…

Tomorrow Devika will be back to tell us more about Playing with Fire.

Be watching for her feature post on Friday about people with the “fire element”.

Until tomorrow, here’s another little snippet!

“What if I enjoy playing with fire?”

    Fire magic and ice magic together is a wonderful complement. Isn’t inspiration a marvelous thing? It can come from art or lima beans. Good job!

    • Thanks! I agree, the strangest things can spark a story. 🙂
