Adair Arlenabout this book: The House of Tomorrow should appeal to readers who enjoy romance, suspense and intrigue.
The protagonist in my stories, Paul Gregory, is a creation of my imagination. Lily, the heroine, shares some of my life experiences, so I put them to use. Only one of the characters was based on an actual person and, of course, I changed his name.
When I began writing The House of Tomorrow, I wrote the outline in twenty minutes before dawn one morning in the month of March and must admit that I strayed from the plot almost immediately, as the characters quickly evolved and started going off in their own directions. For instance, to my surprise, the guy who was supposed to be a shallow, self-serving scoundrel turned out to be noble. And the guy with the tough exterior, who was intended to be a wise-cracking extrovert, soon achieved real emotional depth.
I finished writing this book in September that same year, following a summer of turmoil during which I was with¬out computer, therefore unable to write. This was because of a move from south Louisiana to northern Virginia. So the fact that I wrote a book in under six months just goes to show that it can be done – but, unfortunately, I've never managed to do it again.
