That's a difficult question to answer because ideas have multiple sources. Sometimes I'm day-dreaming and a thought comes into my head--it might be a scene or it might be a sentence or two--and then, when I'm thinking about it I'll realise that it didn't come out of nowhere because it's connected with other things in my head. Some of those might be things I've read; some might have happened to me or to someone I know; and some might be things I overheard. A random example: there's a short story called Alice's Gangbang on my blog (you can download it free here: http://tinyurl.com/k25ucfx). It's set in a logging town in Western Canada; I'm Canadian (though I don't live there now) and although I never lived in the west or in a logging town this story came from something I was told by a woman who came east from British Columbia after she was attacked while her husband was in jail. I took that true story and thought, "What if she found a way to take revenge?" and that thought led to my story. And that "What If?" question has a lot to do with where my ideas come from. I start with something I know and ask myself, "What if...?" Then I imagine the events that might have happened--I try to put myself into the minds of the people involved and think, "What would they do here? What would they say? What would they be afraid of? What would they hope for?" And, also, I think about what they would see, hear, smell. Sometimes the whole story generates itself in a day, in fact sometimes at a single session, and sometimes it takes years.
That's a long answer; I hope it tells you what you want to know but, if not, feel free to ask another :-)

That gets the writing process going again and I can return to my book. The fact is, though, that if I am struggling it's usually because one or more of the characters is resisting where I'm taking the story and when that happens I spend time talking to the characters--"What do you want to do?". "What would YOU say in that position?" and they tell me and the block disappears. That's what works for me.(less)

I have two of my books newly out in audiobook format and I’m so excited. The books are somewhat different in style and content.


Lovers in Their Fashion is – according to my editor at Mandrill Press – deliciously romantic, delightfully amusing and explicitly sexual. Ooh :-)


The brilliant narrator Missy Cambridge certainly brings out the humor in this extract, when Merrill is describing what she...
