Question: What do you love most about writing fiction?

The most basic answer one could give: the creating of the characters and their story. I have so many stories in my head, waiting their turn to be "put on paper". Allowing a story to unfold is such a thrill. I don't know where they come from, but they accumulate in my mind like weeds in a garden. Okay, good weeds; pretty weeds. Yes, they exist! And my favorite part of the creative process is revision. Call me crazy, I like revising. I like adding the skin to the bones. Arranging the bones has it's pros as well, but applying the skin is challenging in the most thrilling way.

About Linda Juliano

I'm a novelist and short story writer of women's fiction, literature and romantic-suspense. I am not, however, limited to those categories. I grew up in the Pacific NW (Oregon) where I developed my love of most outdoor activities (boating, downhill skiing, hiking and so much more), but now reside in San Francisco, CA. with my husband and sons. I like to stay active and fit, but I profess I'm a true chocoholic. I'm sure I don't have any other shortcomings. None.

My first novel, Cadence Beach, can be found (and purchased) on Amazon at You can find some of my short stories and flash fiction work at ( Oct. 2017 issue-Over The Edge), Adelaide Lit.magazine ( Apr. 2018-The Blue Hat) and at Across the Margin Magazine ( May 2018-Caged).
