Once I start writing though, I'm rolling, but it's starting that is tough.

A few things about me. I'm a fly by the seat of your pants writer. I don't outline. Not on paper and not in my mind. I have no idea what is going to happen until I begin writing. I like it! If I don't know, then the reader won't know. Other than starting with the main characters, such as The Darkslayer or Nath Dragon, everyone else just shows up. I can't explain it but it's fun. (less)

They loved it, so I decided to write a full length novel. It took 10 years to finish it, but I hung in there. Now I write books in 1 to 3 months and I have 23 books to show for it. (less)

Man, I didn't get notification of this, so I am sorry I missed the question. Depending on what you like, but if it's based off I like, start with The Darkslayer Omnibus. Thanks for reading!
