about the author

interview with heather buchine

Where did the idea for Inspire come from?
I was actually camping with my family when the idea for the story came to me.  We had just hiked through the woods down to a lake, and I was staring out at the boats when it hit me.  I spent the rest of the afternoon “daydreaming” away.
How did you come up with the name of the title?
My protagonist, Paige, has a tattoo that inspired the title “Inspire.” It’s also a key part of her character.
What was the hardest part of writing Inspire? The easiest?
The hardest part of writing the book was writing the ending.  It took a couple of drafts before I was happy with the way I was leaving off.  (I’m trying not to give too much away, so I’ll leave it at that.) The easiest part was writing the dialogue between Paige and Travis, and the “LOVE” scenes. They were fun to write!!
Are you working on any other projects?
Yes. At least two of the other characters from this book are getting their own stories, and then there are a couple other projects in the works. 
Do you have a specific writing process?
I really consider myself a mix between a panster and a plotter. The first part of my process is visualizing the characters and the main scenes of the book.  My mind starts playing them out like a movie, and so I write it down exactly how I see it.  Then, I go back and fill in the story around those scenes until I have a book that I would like to jump into.  Although I outline my book ahead of time, things always change along the way as I get to know my characters better. 
6.  Do you have a certain time of day where you feel most creative?
Honestly, not really.  I usually always have a notebook nearby so that I can scribble down things as they come to me.  I could be in the shower, in the car, running through the check-out line, or making dinner and something may hit me. 
Do you have any favorite authors?
Yes, I have LOTS of favorite authors, but the two that stick out the most are: S.C. Stephens and Abbi Glines.  Their stories come to life for me, and I have a thing for their leading men!
What tips or advice do you have for other aspiring writers?
My first tip would be to write what you love! Second, edit, edit and edit some more. And third, if you’re a self-published author, let someone else do your formatting.  (Your time saved is so worth the money!)

paige & travis dream cast

"As I raised my head, I met stunning blue eyes set in the most gorgeous face that I had ever seen. WOW! I thought as my body reacted on the spot. Trying not to ogle but unable to look away, I quickly took in the sight. He was tall, with short, dark, spiky hair and was sporting a slight five o’clock shadow on his perfect chin. So SEXY! my mind purred as I looked down to see the rest of him. Although he was wearing a long sleeved t-shirt and jeans, I could tell that he was built and that his body underneath was just as incredible. Our eyes briefly locked, and then he smiled. His mouth immediately drew my attention, and I had to look away before he could read my thoughts on my face." (TRAVIS)

    1. We are with you on this one! We love this love/hate relationships that in the end it's all about love. We have to confess that the Travis Heather Buchine chose to give us a mental image of the character's style & look, is a perfect motivation to read the book. I mean, we are in love with Adam Levine, so it won't be difficult to love Travis hahaha
