The best way to deal with writer's block is to stop worrying about whether or not what you're writing is "good." Who knows what's good anyway?

Thanks so much for your question, and I'm thrilled that you like Emily, as she is one of my favourite characters as well. As a matter of fact The Vindico was optioned to become a TV show, but we are still in the process of making that happen. Fingers crossed that the production goes through and we can see Emily on the small screen :)(less)
