You cannot build a house without walls, so every chapter is meticulously structured before I even begin to write. I also set aside a specific time each week to write... the rest of the days I am thinking, planning and jotting down ideas for the story. Because of where I live, I do a lot of driving... fortunately, this gives me a lot of time to dream up ideas. (less)

“Uncut grass always meant something.”
Tess McLennan, Ghosts

“What a peculiarity it is, that domino effect. One incident, one decision, and perhaps several subsequent disasters… or several subsequent triumphs. Perhaps, more often than not, people find themselves in the wrong place, at the wrong time, rather than the satisfaction of being in that elusive right place. Because the world always favours the disaster story, rather than that of a triumph. ”
Tess McLennan, Ghosts

“I always loved watching people panic. The chaos it caused, the tangible scent of fear that always came afterwards. Panic, then fear. That’s the way it always worked. The way their bodies froze up, the way their thoughts start racing as fast as their hearts, and the sweat that dripped down their foreheads, pungent sweat, sweet and hot. There were always people who tried futile control methods, like breathing, or repeating calming affirmations. And all the while, I admired their optimism.”
