Writing the first book, The Holiday Killers was an adventure and a leap of faith in using my imagination to write a book that was about a subject that I had limited knowledge from a life perspective! This was my first step into the unknown world of publishing, the internet and the public world! To put yourself out there was a bold move on my part. I was not really sure that I could do it!!! I started The Holiday Killers in the dark when Hurricane Igor struck Newfoundland in September 2010 and had the main characters John Lee Harris and Roy Wade Boone coming to life by the time the power came back!
Writing the second book, Legacy of Evil, flowed so easily from the first book and I wasn’t really concerned anymore what the world thought of my writing! I did it because I could!! Dana Elliott’s fate was sealed when she met John Lee Harris and Roy Wade Boone. Her twin children Devon and Darla would never be able to survive their Legacy of Evil!
The third novel, the Squatters, I wasn’t sure I had this book in me! However, when my husband Mark and I visited Nashville, Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge and I saw the beautiful scenery and people of Tennessee I could imagine Judas George and Lara and what it was like to grow up in the poor parts of a world that could be hard to leave and ultimately return to! I remember writing much of the Squatters while we were there. Not knowing how my book would turn out, it was only when we returned home that my husband challenged me to write a book with a happy ending. It was then that the Squatters came alive!!
So where do I go from here? I have at least a couple of more books in my head which you might like!! Another journey on the path of writing!!
