Re: Dead on Delivery
Do you use a character chart when you're developing your characters or do they tend to shock you with some of the stuff they do that isn't in an outline or chart anywhere?

I'm terrible with charts and files on characters and they often surprise me by saying or doing things that I don't expect. One of the subplots in Dead on Delivery took me totally by surprise. I had no idea that Alex felt that way until he told me about it.

I can see why the police might have thought you were stalking or stealing. I get really pulled in by dialogue, but good world building is what makes a book special.

Wow! I guess you do really need to try to keep track of the little things, especially in a series!

I am amazed at how detailed some urban fantasy worlds get. I can see the value of basing some of it on real places. The little details can be difficult in a series. One romance series has brown haired twins in the first book that are blond in the rest of the series.

I always appreciate it when an author takes the extra time to put some feeling into their book. You can usually tell, because as you're reading it, the emotions you get while you're reading, tend to run deeper than normal. For example, I've read romances that were "quaint," and I've read others that have totally knocked my socks off and left me with wanting more!! You have that attention for detail, and we are all grateful. Otherwise, it would just be another paranormal book!!

Here you are at Fresh Fiction and I just purchased your first book yesterday for my Kobo!

I'm always amazed at the process the authors go through when writing books! They will mention perhaps, that a character surprised them.....like the characters are telling them the story and not the other way around!

Your real-life cruising in the neighborhood for setting made me laugh. I can just imagine people peeking behind their curtains to see what that strange car is doing at all hours.

I always find it interesting when an author explains their writing process and how the characters or story rules. Thanks for sharing!
