Annathesa Darksbane loves writing books, which you may or may not have noticed. Specifically, she loves writing more of what she’d love to read the most: action-packed books with likable, diverse characters that keep the pages turning—and with two published series and more on the way, she’s only getting started. She likes to put some twists, suspense, a bit of romance, and a lot of herself into every book she writes with the hope that you’ll enjoy reading them half as much as she enjoyed writing them.
On the off chance she’s not writing, she enjoys video games, martial arts, philosophy, psychology, learning more about almost anything, taking care of her little family, and dreaming of becoming an actual cyborg.

I've started a few stories from what comes to me in dreams, and probably about 60% of our basic premises come from role-playing stories my wife and I have done, but most of the material in the books is original. That, or so heavily mutated from the original that it might as well be.

I'll be in the shower, or waiting in the car, or sitting in a waiting room, or walking, and I'll be thinking about my story (or not, sometimes I'll be thinking about something else completely) and BOOM. "Wouldn't it be cool if..." Or "you know, that's how to connect those two ideas" and off I go from there. The ideas just spill forth in a rush, sometimes faster than I can get them down (I'm not a very fast typist). Sometimes this will happen while I'm in the middle of writing, too, which can be almost annoying when I'm trying to write one scene and my brain is like "but you know what'll be REALLY cool? This scene that won't happen for six books!"(less)

It's not the same, of course; I add characters (or remove them), change plotlines, alter events...and some of the books and shorts I create whole cloth. But the first spark still comes from the stories we told years ago, if sometimes heavily altered in the conversion to book format.
Several of my book ideas come from a similar source (I've been a storyteller for many more years than I've been a writer) but some of them are just from a random spark of inspiration, too. I'd say it's probably about 50/50 which is which.(less)
