I started writing Forever Mine in the tenth grade.
The first seven or so chapters were put away into a drawer for many years. I
finally found it one day and decided I needed to finish
The Moreno Brothers was never going to be a five-book series. In
fact, originally it wasn't going to be a series at all. I was just writing a
love story about a high school senior who had two brothers and several friends
who falls hard for the new girl in school. One story
When I finally finished Forever Mine the first time, it was
about ten chapters shorter than the final everyone has read. After going back
and finishing it, I put it away again because something about the ending just
wasn't doing it for me. I pulled it out again two years later and rewrote the
ending. During this two-year
hiatus, I did take it out and tweak here and there so the whole gang was in my
head all the time. But then I sat down finalized the ending. Only then, when it
was truly done, did I feel completely depressed because I missed my characters.
That was when I decided there had to be
When I decided there would be more, it was The
Moreno Brothers for a reason. I was only going to write the stories of the
three brothers, until Sofia and Eric's story started to come to me as all my new
stories come to me—relentlessly, at night, and when I’m trying to
Sweet Sofie was supposed to be a 30-40k word short novella. This
was when I found out I'm incapable of writing anything short. Consequently I've
always said I was going to write Moreno Brothers’ holiday novellas, but I'm
afraid to even start because I'm certain they will turn into full-length
Romero's story was never supposed to see the light of day. But I
tell you once my readers plant the seed the story takes on a life of its own.
His story came to me slowly and then just started to snowball and I had to write
it. His by far has been the one I was most nervous about putting out there,
especially since he is so different from his more proper counterparts in the
I've often mentioned that my muse takes over all
the time. This is probably hard to believe, but some of the twists and
sudden changes in the plots take me by as much surprise as they do my readers.
One perfect example of when my thoughts actually made it into the narrative is
when Angel is sitting in his car watching Sarah and the coach talking in the
bleachers. Try as he might to stay calm about it he finally starts walking
toward them. The very next line after that happens is "He
had no idea what he was going to say or do, but even the voice in his head
couldn’t stop him." Okay, that voice? That was me! I sat up straight as I
often do when the story starts to write itself thinking WTH!? What's he gonna
(Whispers) I actually toyed with idea of having
Sofie leave Eric for Brandon. (Dodges tomatoes and eggs from angry Eric
loyalists.) But I didn't!! =D Still, I felt Brandon needed his happily ever
after, and that's why I'll be giving it to him very soon. Of course, there will
be a ton of turmoil, angst, and heart-stopping twists before he gets it. Hey! If
he wants it just like all my other guys, he'll have to take it like
Many have mentioned enjoying reading about these
second-generation Morenos. There are still quite a few first-generation stories
that haven't been told, but let the record show that the seed has been planted.
I still crack up when I read certain scenes in Romero, especially
the ones with Manny and Max.
I write because I must. It's not a choice or a pastime, it's an
unyielding calling and my passion."
Elizabeth continues to answer to her calling on a daily basis.
Since releasing her debut novel Forever Mine (Moreno Brothers #1) in 2010 she
has now published 10* novels total and fast at work on the next. The excitement
her Moreno Brothers, 5th Street, and Fate series have garnered have far exceeded
her wildest dreams. It is with as much excitement that she'll continue to put
out books related to these series as well as introduce brand new ones very
