Hi, readers! Today I’ve got Robert Wacaster here for a quick chat. I posed one question to him:
What’s one trait you don’t have and wish you did?
Enjoy his response! I certainly did.
I wish I knew women better. I’m sure this sounds cliché, but there have been so many times in my life when I think certain girls have liked me, but I blew them off. And then of course there are the girls that I’ve liked who didn’t like me. A social life can be so confusing and difficult sometimes. It’s so hard for me to understand women. I see a girl walk into a room wearing only one shoe and think I’m being nice asking “What happened to your other shoe?”. The next thing I know she’s running out of the room in tears! What’s wrong with asking about a shoe? As a side note, this exact scenario has really never happened to me, but there are plenty of scenarios like this. A male answer to the same question would be something like, “It got stuck in the mud outside.”
And so how do I write female characters? In the movie As Good as it Gets Jack Nicholson plays a writer. In one scene a woman asks him how he writes female characters so well and he replies, “I think of a man, and then take away reason and accountability.”. I’m not sure that’s quite the way I write, but it was still funny. I think I write my female characters the way I want them to be. Sometimes they aren’t as difficult to figure out as I think they are.
Now, your turn. What one trait do YOU wish YOU had?

How to describe my series in only a quick blurb? Boy meets girl. Boy and girl complicate relationship, get quickly engaged, and then married. More details in the books. *chuckle* Be sure to check out all three books in the series, but to get started, here’s the first one:
