C. Kay Brooksabout this book: Readers wanted to know what happened next after my novel Unexpected Rendezvous ended.
A number of unusual events happened in Mono County that year, in real life. The story ideas began to flow enough to write a 50,000 word draft for my Nanowrimo challenge novel that November. (write 50,000 words in the month of November Challenge)
Plane crashes, a disappearing fisherman, a freak storm that flooded the jail, a federal attack on a marijuana farm in the national forest, weather related accidents, fires, the huge annual July 4th celebration, bad guys on the loose in real life were just too compelling to not include them as complications surrounding newly-weds getting to know one another.
When a co-worker and budding author wanted to have our main characters "meet" in each others novel, I fought it tooth and nail. When he started giving me written scenarios of their meeting, of course I had to rewrite them to get my character right, but I couldn't see a way for them to meet in my novel.ever! Well, at least not until the news broke about the raid on the illegal pot farm. Michael Hunt and his proto-type helicopter ended up visiting my novel and saving Jana and lending suspense and mystery to an action filled section. So, the moral is:keep an open mind, you may be pleasantly surprised.
My friend, John, would be happy to know that Jana didn't become a boring housewife, but struck out with new adventures. She gave her sheriff husband pause on more than one occasion.
