Nancy Straightabout this book: Why did you choose Centaurs for a mythological race to explore?
There have been so many Paranormal Romances I've read and LOVED. Each one has been an inspiration to me. When I wrote Blood Debt, I knew I wanted to draw the reader in the same way as my favorite authors pulled me into their novels, but finding mythological creatures that hadn't been written about by any of my favorite authors was difficult.
Centaurs had always been interesting to me, but I'd read almost nothing about them. Before I started writing the Touched Series, I began to research Centaurs. It turns out, very few others had written about Centaurs and there weren't a tremendous amount of legends available to pull from.
I incorporated much of the published Greek Mythology surrounding Centaurs and in a few places I created a history that wasn't there.
There is a lot of freedom, as an author, when you choose characters without a great deal of history behind them. Most readers know what Centaurs are, but few know about the history of their battles, how they're tied to constellations or perceptions of them throughout history.
Writing about a mythological race that has an air of mystery around them has been exciting. Very few authors have attempted to use Centaurs in the Paranormal Romance Genre and I'm excited to share the Touched Series with the world. I hope you'll love it as much as I do!
