Some of my favorite “up all night” films are "Into the Night", "Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist”, “American Graffiti”, "Cold Dog Soup", and “After Hours”. The elements of a good "up all night" story are usually:

• an intriguing friend or love interest who is more trouble than they're worth,
• a crazy place (or places) where things happen that never happen in the protagonist's regular life,
• a protagonist living a very staid and boring life that needs to be shook up a little, and
• a night (or a few nights) to encapsulate it all.

These zany movies play upon the fact that when you stay up all night with someone you're tired, your barriers are thin, and you spill secrets without meaning to.

I wanted to write a story like that and THE MOONLIGHT MARKET is the result.

Pay No Attention To The Essential Plot Device Behind The Curtain

[image error]So while writing this blog post, I was deep in the middle of a class by Kris Kennedy on backstory. (Which was excellent BTW, so if you ever see her teaching that class anywhere, run to register!)


If you don’t know what backstory is, it’s the part of your book you’re not supposed to put on the page. It’s the contents of that dreaded info dump we know we shouldn’t let anywhere near our p

“All that glisters is not gold;

But my outside to behold:

“Life has no meaning. Each of us has meaning and we bring it to life. It is a waste to be asking the question when you are the answer.”
Joseph Campbell

“Men came in and dragged us apart. It took us five minutes to bring Nora to. She sat up holding her cheek and looked around the room until she saw Morelli, nippers on one wrist, standing between two detectives. Morelli's face was a mess: the coppers had worked him over a little just for the fun of it. Nora glared at me. "You damned fool," she said, "you didn't have to knock me cold. I knew you'd take him, but I wanted to see it."
One of the coppers laughed. "Jesus," he said admiringly, "there's a woman with hair on her chest.”
Dashiell Hammett, The Thin Man
