Laurell K. Hamilton I tried to write Jean-Claude out of the series in book three, Circus of the Damned, but I couldn't do it. I realized that both Anita and I would miss him too much. I tried again in book eight, Blue Moon. Once I realized Jean-Claude was here to stay, I don't believe I ever said I didn't want to write about him. My instincts were right on one thing though, by letting him stay in the series past the early books his special brand of vampiric powers changed the direction of the series from what I had planned.

Laurell K. Hamilton I've actually been writing the Anita Blake series for over twenty years, and Merry Gentry for ten years, and each book makes it easier to get into the reality of each of my fictional worlds. Practice makes me a better writer, in all ways.
Laurell K. Hamilton So many people have asked about this particular case, that I'll see if I can come up with a revisit, or at least a follow up mention in a future book.
Laurell K. Hamilton Honestly, don't know. I have some ideas, but nothing finalized. I may just let the babies decide for themselves. So far none of the men have been particularly worried about it, they're just happy to be fathers.
