  • Where did you come up with the names in the story?

Believe it or not, the hardest part of writing to me is coming up with the characters. I’m a pantser. My books are character-driven. I may have the spark of inspiration that gives them a nudge, but they take over the story. I’m usually halfway through the book before I get a feel for who the character really is and if she sounds like an “Amy.” The characters in my first book were Bill, Joe, and Mary. Until much later and I got to know them better. 

I write a lot during the night. Where did you come up with the names in the story? If I wake up tossing and turning it’s because I thought of the next scene or their name comes to me. Sometimes I don’t even get to sleep. Then at 6AM, I’m ready for a nap. Later, when I read what I’d written during the early morning hours, I can’t believe I actually said that big word or used it in a sentence. I’m totally absorbed and in the book as a character. 

  • How long on average does it take you to write a book?

It depends on a number of things. If you need to stop and research along the way, or if you did it prior. If your subject matter is right for you. I may have a spark of an idea but be lead somewhere else entirely. An example would be Secrets and Deceptions, my favorite in the Saddle Creek series. It ended up a military And we all use some of our real-life experiences in a book, it’s just natural “spill-over.”
