About Daniela R. Lovejoy:
Born and living in the Northwest near beautiful nature with both forest and coast with in walking distance, Daniela likes to wander in those surroundings when the weather allows it. She enjoys the fresh air, and it gives her mind space to let new ideas flow.
When not writing, she loves to cuddle up with a book or watch a TV series or hang out with her friends and family.
Daniela have written short stories ever since her teenage years, but since the adult years she has had a sweet spot for gender swap and transformation stories focusing strongly on romance, adventure and the erotic. Daniela started writing them for her own amusement and to please her writing urge. She has now taken the leap and published a book and already working on her next.
What inspires you to write?
I have a vivid imagination that comes up with stories and ideas at all times of day, it can be while out for a walk or when making breakfast. The inspiration can come from just about anything, for example, it was a piece of news about the progress in DNA knowledge about unborn children and the information parents can get before their child is born that gave me the idea for the advanced DNA technology that would transform my main character from male to female in my book.
Tell us about your writing process.
For my first book, I’d the idea and plot line. Where I wanted it to start, what to happen as main points and how it should end. Then I created the characters that fitted into that structure, gave them traits that fitted to the choices they would have to make, trying to make them engaging for the readers and their actions logical for their situation. Then I started the actual writing of the book, knowing my characters and main plot points helped to pave the road towards them, creating dialog, and surroundings to help the story move towards and through those points. I make digital notes for ideas and plot, and then write mostly at my computer, sometimes it goes fast and other times it can move more slowly but that I think is fairly common for many writers.
How do you develop your characters?
For my first book, I knew and developed my characters in advance before writing because I'd a clear plot defined from the start. I then tried to put myself in their situation with their personality in mind and write the dialog based on that. But for my second book, which I write on now the end of the story is not defined yet and I see three possible outcomes so there I let the character have more space to evolve into a different path than I perhaps had expected when I began in order to end up with the best story.
