Writing I have said a lot is like breathing. I need to write and I love to write. I still often wonder, where will I get the next story from. Then I will be listening to some music or read an article and I will file that bit of info away like for a scene… Like I did for the orphanage scene in Redemption at Midnight. BTW that orphanage scene did happen. So when I write and I am a Panster. I write by the seat of my pants and I find it works best for me because it gives me the freedom to allow my characters the room to grow or not. Sometimes they are barely mentioned in a book, then show up later in another book and say “I need my own story!”. I had mentioned that Colum had a sister in one or two sentences in my first vampire book, One Thousand Years to Forever. It took getting through the 2nd book and then I had her story already sitting on the back burner. I write about dragons, wish I had one. I write about tea reading, the art of tea leaf reading. I am going to have the pleasure of going to Bottom of the Cup , Tea Room down in NOLA when I go down there for a convention next year . I can’t wait. It will also be one of my tours for readers. I have a lot of research books at my desk area and I sometimes have to pull myself away from researching. One of my bookcases is full of Cambodia History books. So know when you read my books , even if it’s a little nugget of history or information, I try to do a lot of research before putting something in my books.
