I probably shouldn't answer it, for fear of offending the country I just visited, and loved visiting...but I do have an answer.

When I was in Sri Lanka in July 2015, I hadn't been there since I was 5 years old (which was eons ago, don't ask how long).

While there, I was working on the ending of my latest book in another Regency fantasy romance series. So, intentionally or otherwise, my travel experience began to channel itself into the ending I hand wrote in my journal.

Unfortunately, the end I was working on was about a trip into the underworld. I even questioned one of my cousins, a Christian pastor, on his conception of evil, the devil and hell. I hope he's not reading this.

Anyway, as a result of all of the above, my version of the underworld will likely have elements of Sri Lanka peppered throughout it.(less)

Anyone can tell a two-sentence horror story. You just need something, anything, to spark your inspiration.

For instance, here's a quote from my current new release, Hidden, which is ---NOT--- a horror story. It's an epic fantasy romance. This is a character named Gilly, thinking to herself: I didn’t say that aloud, did I?

Now here's my 2 sentence horror story, using the same phrase:
I didn't say that aloud, did I? Lips pressed tight, Melissa made herself as tiny as she could, lying flat under the floorboards, but the footsteps that had been moving away, turned and creaked toward where she hid.(less)

To Kord, witches are a necessary evil. They cast charms for good weather and crops, but otherwise they're best avoided. But when Kord succumbs to a love spell and starts yearning for a woman he's never met, he refuses to let magic control his destiny. He tracks down the witch responsible—only to discover she is the irresistible woman of his dreams. Like her mother and grandmother before her, Charmaine casts charms for a living. As a witch, she spends her life helping others, not being helped. So when her spells begin misfiring, she has nowhere to turn. Until a handsome farmer arrives demanding she break a love spell, and Charmaine realizes he holds the key to her misspells. But what if solving his problem comes at the cost of her heart's desire?

Shereen Vedam You are very welcome. I see from you profile page that one of your influences was Enid Blyton. I, too, loved her books when I was a child. :) Glad we could connect.
