There are a few reasons why writing quickly became my passion.
- I wasn't finding the kind of books that I wanted to read so I wrote them. Not to suggest there's nothing out there that I enjoy reading but it was more to the point that there was just something missing.
- I wanted to make people see another point of view. Let's explore the other side of things. For example, in my first book Fire, I talk about a rock band's rise to fame and the unexpected negative side that came with instant fame. In my vampire books, I question whether these mystical creatures of fantasy are actually everyday people who happen have some fascinating strengths. And in my recent series about gangsters, I ask whether or not we are clear who the 'good' and 'bad' guys are anymore. There are sometimes some very grey areas.
- I wanted to make people think. Corruption, collusion, racism, white supremacy, Big Pharma, celebrity, untrustworthy corporations....you will see many topics and issues brought up in my books, even if it's merely a passing comment by a character. My goal is to make people think and look at things from a character's perspective rather than the often, black and white version we see on the news.
- To discover a magical world. Sometimes I'm shocked by what my character's do. In fact, I'm always fascinated where the story will take me and just like many of my readers, I can't wait to see what they will do next!
