Is your inner voice out of control?

I write the story in combination with a voice that I don’t want to control. Sometimes the words that flow out of my stories shock me, make me smile, and even make me cry. That’s why I have to write. I think in story form. I see mystery and plots in everything. My inner life is so rich with wonder that I lay awake at night because my mind doesn’t want to go to sleep.

Having said that, in one of my novellas The Lei Crime Series: NARCO ORPHANS (Kindle Worlds Novella) got its title from an event that crept onto my page in the middle of a Federale attack on a drug cartel base in the mountains. It was not in the plot at all; but suddenly… Magic.

Are there times when I wonder if the story I’ve written will find it’s audience? Yes, that lack of confidence happens. So I used a different editor for my current WIP. It was outside my comfort zone to publish a novel that explored sexuality in a way I’d never done before. I asked her to read it and tell me if it was good enough to be published. I was okay with sidelining the novel (it was written a couple of years ago) and not putting-it-out-there. This is what she wrote: I LOVED this story. It was engrossing, fun, emotional, sexy, and even a little unnerving at times. It was perfect!

I write memoir/suspense/action/romantic suspense and recently got nominated for Best Contemporary Book by BTRC2017 for Target In The Sun (Carlos & Mia Book 1). I have a fan base and I never want to disappoint them. With this latest novel, I will attract a wider fan base. The book is totally sexual and has adult content. It unnerved me at times as well.

But in the end, as a writer, I put myself out there, my heart on my sleeve and ask my fans to love my work. Some will, some won’t, and that’s okay.

Narco Orphans NEW RELEASE

Exceptional and captivating author Lynda Filler pulls her readers in once again with this heart-stopping thriller suspense, action drama journey of love, heartache, search and discovery. No sooner than much anticipated ‘The Road to San Pancho’ was released, Lynda Filler’s insatiable appetite for high anxiety in exotic places will leave the reader breathless!

Central to this fast-paced story of young and feisty Peace, a red-headed dynamo who, through the anguish of the recent loss of her mother, finds the beauty and serenity of the seaside village of San Pancho on the Pacific coast of Mexico to be the perfect location to begin her unrelenting search for a father she has never known.

Newfound friend Jared, a rugged and buff heartthrob, extends a supportive hand to Peace during her quest to come to terms with her past and present. All the while, the senseless destruction and killing of innocent nearby village families marks yet another swift and devastating assault by the CIA, DEA and Federales on a mission to capture the elusive and most-wanted Mexican drug cartel crime lord ‘El Chapo’.

Front to back, this gripping novella brings an adrenalin rush of anticipation as scenes play out from the caramel sands of San Pancho. Cascading surf and the fragrance of wild jasmine, combined with scents of the local cuisine, are scintillating. In stark contrast are the dense jungles climbing high into the mountain interface, torrid killing zones where swift and deadly force is waged to weed out a relentless Sinaloa drug cartel and its elusive crime boss.

Tearful and increasingly apprehensive, Peace seeks out clarity through an all-seeing local village Tarot reader who enlightens and proffers a window of opportunity and hope for the young, bereaved woman to reach out and embrace what was in her past and will be in her future that lies ahead.

Embattled by conflicting emotions, Peace finds purpose through the care of grief-stricken children whose sleepless nights and memory-torn days of explosive violence and the death of their beloved parents leaves them orphaned and desperate for love, safe haven and caring.

Nothing hurts more than the pain and anguish seen through the eyes of innocent children.
