About These Unquiet Bones

Trying to get behind the truth of her mother's death, Amy Snow unleashes the skeletons lurking in the dark of her father's closet, and learns a terrible, twisted truth about her family tree. Meanwhile, a man named Adam is on a mission to restore Paradise to its former glory. To accomplish this, he must find "The Lost One", a girl he calls Eve, and sacrifice her to the god she betrayed the day a talking serpent slithered into the Garden of Eden.

Mark Kirkbride | 13 comments Hi Dean, I just wondered whether you planned the book beforehand or whether you let it unfold as you wrote it? I'm always curious about that.

Dean | 4 comments Mark,

I pretty much let it unfold as I wrote. I don't really outline. I pretty much take an idea and try to build a story around it. Bear in mind, however, that the story I started out with (originally titled Captured Goddess) looked nothing like what I ended up writing. For example, major characters (such as Layne) were minor characters and vise versa (Michael was originally the lead antagonist). Settings were different, as were plot points. Scenes were cut and replaced. I went through many different drafts and versions of the story. But I kept a notebook with notes such as plot points and character developments so that I could keep everything straight and not let the story or the characters get away from me. Thanks for asking! Hope you're enjoying (or enjoyed) the book. Let me know if you have other questions.

Mark Kirkbride | 13 comments Many thanks for that, Dean. I'm even more impressed now. Yes, definitely enjoying the book.
