I've been writing romantic suspense since 2006, but recently I've been focusing more on straight suspense with some romantic elements thrown in. Now here's the weird reason. My brain keeps coming up with killers even creepier than the last one I wrote, and I find it necessary to partly tell the story from the killer's point of view so readers can see how really unstable he is. Sooooo...should it worry me that my mind conjures lethal, maniacal killers?
While all of my books, mostly, have a happy ending, I spend a lot of time making that killer into someone no one would want to meet in a dark alley. I know their pathological process, what sets them on edge, and what triggers their need to kill on a minute by minute basis. And I enjoy writing from their points of view.
When I wrote my first killer in Burning Reflections, which was published by Samhain Publishing in 2007, I thought I'd never write another unhinged character quite like that one. Oh, how wrong I was.
So if you're reading one of my suspense books, don't be surprised if you find yourself asking what was I thinking. As you can see, I wonder that myself.
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
