Guest Post-The Most Excellent, Jennifer Wylie

Your Brain is Different from My Brain

Guest Post by Jen Wylie


“I said your brain is different from my brain.”

“We’re the same person, we don’t have different brains.”

“Well fine, I meant everyone’s brain is different.”

“Don’t try to confuse me, I’m only on my second coffee.”

“I’m quite aware of that!”

“I feel a headache coming on.”

“Then stop talking to yourself, myself? Okay, now my head hurts.”

“Let’s stop and just write, we’re supposed to be doing a guest post you know.”

Yes, I talk to myself. Quite often I have conversations going on in my head, not usually with myself, but between various characters in whatever I’m writing. Apparently this is not uncommon amongst writer (authors-whatever). At least I hope so. People who write are wired a bit differently I think. I’ve heard many times “Oh, I could never write a story like this! How do you do it?” I just do, it comes naturally to me. I constantly have ideas and stories floating around in my head like little movies. I write what I see and hear.

I think it’s a good thing everyone is different. Each person has their own way of telling a story or interpreting it. Different isn’t bad. I’m not crazy (well not too crazy).

It’s interesting to see what others think about my work. Whether they liked it or not, how they interpreted my words, if they felt the emotions I did while writing it. Sometimes I’m surprised, like with my new novel Sweet Light, I thought it wouldn’t be popular with men (as relationships are a big part of the plot) but some have read it and enjoyed it, they just commented on different aspects within the story. The human brain is certainly an amazing thing!

Do you have stories in your head? Have you ever been surprised at what others thought about a book? Hopefully I’m not alone…but then I’m really not, I can always talk to myself. 😀

When fate conspires against you and gives you three loves to choose from, what do you do? What if you make the wrong choice?

Shara is a Healer, raised and trained from childhood until her unique gift manifests itself. When she gains the rank Journeyman she is hired to serve as the court healer for the barbaric kingdom of Glendor.

Untrained for war, she is thrust unmercifully into its bloody arms when the kingdom is invaded. Ordered by her king to the front lines to tend the wounded, she is forced to flee when their camp is attacked. Happening upon a wounded soldier in the forest, every mile back to the capital is a struggle, and breaking the Healer’s code, she falls in love with her charge.

If Shara thought that to be the least of her troubles, the appearance of a fierce warrior captain who appoints himself her protector, teaches her differently. Trouble comes in threes at the appearance of a former love and fellow healer. Faced with decisions of the heart and the sudden manifestation of her gift, there is little room for anything else to go wrong. Or at least that’s what Shara thought.

My Review!:Okay, I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of romance books (waits for cries of outrage to die down)
I will tell you this, I’m a super huge fan of Jen Wylie’s. It’s why I picked up Sweet Light against every fiber of my body saying, “Don’t read a romance novel! You’ll be one of THOSE people.”
I’m glad I didn’t listen. The aspects of romance in the novel actually complemented the story rather than overwhelming it with gush gush. The characters were incredibly believable. The scenarios were absolutely riveting. And best of all, the whole world Ms. Wylie has created felt real. The basic story is of a young healer coming into her power and getting more than she bargained for when she saves the life of a young prince. It reminded me of a Mercedes Lackey novel, which to me is the greatest compliment you can pay an author. Jen Wylie might be a newer author, but her stories unfold like those of seasoned veterans. BUY IT, READ IT, YOU’LL LOVE IT. I did.

    We writers are a different breed.

      We are for sure 🙂 Even though writers are different too, I do find I can relate to them at lot better. At least we have something to talk about 😀

    Not so much when you plot all day and write about murder. People tend to give you a wider berth 😉

      bwahaha! I often raised my eyebrows when people look at you rather strangely and ask if it’s based on real life. 😛
