What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I signed up for nanowrimo for the first time and this story kept popping up in my head about a woman who lost her husband to a terrible accident and how she copes.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I can imagine a scene, what will happen, and place certain characters in the scene to do their actions. If I need an emotional character, I can think of several I have met in my life of reading and watching programs. If I need a detective, the same rule applies
Running, I am running. My bare feet slap the thick dew covered reeds. I seem to be running as if I want to prevent something from happening. What am I running to? Or am I running from this fear that I feel gripping my soul? I have to keep going. I have to get somewhere. I can't be late.
The bridge, I have to get to the bridge. But why? A deep urgency propels me forward until I stop by the shore of the rushing river. Moon lit sprays tinged with silver drops lap the shore’s edge. I see the bridge. The cold air overwhelms me. I am only wearing my pink nightshirt.
"I have to get there before he does," I tell myself.
My bare feet stumbled along the uneven river's edge as I try not to take my eyes off the metal span ahead.
The closer I approached the metal overpass crossing the Snake River, the further it moved away. Then in horror, I watched a car break through the side railing and fly over the rushing waters. It hovered in the air for the longest time until it hit the churning liquid with a tremendous splash. For a few moments, the auto floated, and I could see someone inside pounding against the driver’s window, trying to escape. Like a hungry monster, the river swallows the car with the occupant until the man inside could no longer be seen.
I jump into the river, hoping I could reach the drowning person, but the waters were too swift–
I sat up in my bed choking, gasping, and drenched with sweat.
I became interested in writing in my thirties and forties but work and life got in the way and there wasn't anything close to an amazon in those days. Ten years ago as a snowbird I spotted a sign in the library about a writing class. This time I had a lot of free time on my hands and said 'why not?' This was a totally new experience for me and occupied my days. When I finally wrote this book, I knew I had to write more. I went on to try my luck with nanowrimo in November and wrote my first urban fantasy in 11 days. I didn't know I could do that. I now have 16 novels and several novellas and short stories published.
