How did you come up with Honeybun for your books?

Sam Cheever Great question, LaVida! Names are kind of my thing, actually. I love using different, fun-sounding names in my books but there's always a reason behind their use. If you look at a baby names book you'll find the origination of the name as well as its meanings. I use this information to pick the perfect name for each of my characters. In the case of the Honeybuns, I wanted something that would stand out in a sea of book titles. Then I was able to give each book a fun title that reflected their story. Alastair Honeybun, the hero from Book 1: A Honeybun and Coffee, is actually a real guy's name. :D I saw the name online and I was hooked. That gave me the idea of giving each of the Honeybun brothers a strange, old English type first name and it's been a ton of fun. These guys are big enough to survive the names and keep their sense of humor about it. You've got to love that!
