I'm doing NaNoWriMo again this year. I love it. I do a novel every year and send it off to Dreamspinner Press. Last year's NaNo book was Bound for Trouble. I think it's one of my best books and it was a lot of fun to write.

This year's story is about a Marine helicopter pilot and a Washington DC journalist. It’s got a little bit of Scandal, West Wing and my own experiences working for the White House. I got the idea a while back, but when I got to see a lot of marine helicopters up close at San Fransico's Fleet Week, I knew I had to have a helo pilot.

If you're doing NaNo, check out my story planning worksheets. I use them for every book I write and it has helped me write better stories and create better characters. You can find the worksheets here.
