Carrow Brown grew up in a military family and traveled the world absorbing everything she could (including whatever bad words she could find!) Carrow’s passion has always been to write stories to share with others that both entertain and provoke thought. Carrow resides in sunny Arizona with her husband and German shepherds. In the little free time she has between writing The Ghost Walker Chronicles and her clinical psychology graduate work, Carrow can often be found sketching her characters into life and hiking in the wilderness with her husband and dogs.

She is easily bribed with tacos and the answer is always “yes” if you offer to show her pictures of your dogs.

I threw in Norse mythology and Lovecraftian horror for fun and she turned out pretty good.

Silence was not supposed to be a character. He just happened one day after a particularly bad week at work. Originally, he was a brooding magical sword who could only convey feelings but wasn’t chatty or demanding things like stabbings or participation awards. I wasn’t sure if I was going to keep the changes until I took the pages to my writing group for feedback. The group ended up loving Silence and demanded he have a stronger role in the story. A bunch of rewriting later, Silence became a thing.

I can’t talk about Ghost and Silence creation without mentioning Vainya as well. You see, when Silence took shape in my mind, I saw that he was the ID of the human psyche—instincts, desires, wants. Ghost easily fell into the role of the Ego—the part of a person which balances the desires and logic. So who was my Super Ego? Who was the person grounded in logic and moral choices? That became Vainya, Ghost's overseer and Master of the Well of Knowledge. I became very attached to this concept and reworded a lot of the dialogue in my story to reflect this without outright telling everyone what going on. Super nerd moment for me.

If you’ve been writing for any span of time, you’ve more than likely heard the phrase, “You should join a writing group!” There are a lot of good reasons to join one, but I’ll be the first to tell you that they have their cons as well.

First, I love writing groups. I’ve had the opportunity to meet some amazing people, hear stories, and make very strong friendships. Every week I have gone, I’ve imp Read more of this blog post »
