On Writing


Deena Alexander

When my youngest son, who is now ten, was born, he didn’t sleep through the night. Since my daughter was seven before she started sleeping through the night, I figured I was in for a lot of years of sleepless nights, which was fine by me because I rarely sleep anyway. I’ve always loved reading, but with all those nights looming ahead of me, I decided to give writing a try. I knew nothing about the writing process, didn’t own a computer, didn’t know what Microsoft Word was, didn’t know how to send an email…never mind using track changes for editing. But I wanted to write, so I set up a loose-leaf binder and began my first novel by hand.

Once my husband realized I was serious about writing a novel, he set me up an office and got me a computer. My best friend taught me how to work Microsoft word, and I took off from there, researching everything I could get my hands on about the writing process.

Now, I work full-time as a writer and freelance editor. Even though I know what I’m doing more now than I did back then, my writing life isn’t without challenges. Because of the pandemic, I am homeschooling my younger son. My older son, who is twenty-two and on the autistic spectrum, is trying to write his own children’s book and needs help. To make things easier for me to do everything at once, my husband (who is amazing and one of the most supportive men ever, so I am very blessed to have him) built an office in our new house with three work stations, so all of us can work together.

Although I love nothing more than working with my boys, sometimes I need quiet space to think and plot. So, when those times happen, my favorite place to sneak away for a few hours is my sunroom, though I do occasionally get distracted by wildlife, most notably, snakes, which are fun to watch from inside but terrifying when I run into them without a barrier between us.


Kidnapped in the woods is written by Deena Alexander. The story starts out with heart pounding suspense and does not let up the whole time. Journalist Rachel Davenport has a hot tip about an abducted teen that is about sold into trafficking. She wants to act fast - but does not count on the gunfire that follows. They reach a cabin and they find Pat Ryan and his K9 partner, Shadow. 

Two strangers bursting through his cabin door is the last thing that Pat expected. He has been in the cabin recuperating and healing - but he knows that they need help and they will need to move fast to stay ahead of the kidnappers. 

I loved Rachel and Pat. Both have some hurt in their past. They need to work together to get the teen and themselves out safely. I loved all the action and suspense in this story. 

Thank you to the author, publisher and Great Escapes Tour for allowing me to read a copy of this book - all thoughts are my own.
