If you asked Danita Minnis which is easier, writing songs or writing novels, she would say it was the former. Melodies and rhymes are second nature. What her characters want is another thing entirely. With her debut novel, Falcon's Angel, she learned to listen to her spunky heroine and sinfully confident hero. They're funny and in danger, and that's just the way they want it. Lesson learned: don't try to save them.
When she's not writing, Danita exercises her lungs at her son's soccer matches and their favorite theme park, because everyone knows it's easier on the stomach to scream your way down a roller coaster.
