Coming Together: Through the Storm Inspiration - Naomi Bellina

Well today I have Naomi Bellina over to talk about her inspiration for her story Take Me Like A Hurricane which can be found in the charity anthology Coming Together: Through The Storm.

So here's Naomi:

I was inspired to write about the aftermath of a hurricane in Florida because after living through several, I can tell you, afterwards is the worse part. During the storm, it's awesome to see Mother Nature going all out and showing her power. After, it's hot, messy and miserable. There's no electric so no air conditioning, people run their noisy generators nonstop so you can't sleep, nothing is open, you have no hot water for a shower, it's awful. What would happen if there was only one hotel room with AC left? I know I would turn into a she-bitch to get it! I had a great time writing this story and putting my hero and heroine through a little hell. When they finally get to taste heaven, it's that much sweeter!

All about Naomi:

Naomi lives in beautiful sunny Florida with the love of her life and a magical calico cat. She writes for various fiction and non-fiction markets, but finds she is drawn to romance because her characters insist on canoodling and falling madly in love. So she lets them. Occasionally, however, they go to dark and strange places. She lets them do this also. Most of her stories will surprise readers with unexpected twists and turns, because isn't that what makes life exciting?
Her interests include dancing, hula-hooping, drumming, and creating healthy meals. She takes the opportunity to play, have fun, and indulge in the pursuit of passion whenever possible. She hopes you enjoy her stories and would love to hear from you at naomibellina(at)live(dot)com. Visit her website at and chat on Facebook at
