In the spirit of making my blog something you want to read, a few months back I started sharing more of myself with my fans and followers. Normally, I am such a private and shy person. Last week, I shared my inspiration behind the Bounty Hunters series. Then two weeks earlier I shared a sneak peek at Playing for Keeps. So today, I I’ll share the inspiration for my Mystic Nights series with you.
So, Mystic Nights. Where did that idea come from? Well, I was finishing up my Bounty Hunter series, and I knew I wanted a spin off series as my fans did not want to see the end of the Marino Brothers. I had written about a character in Book 4, someone Andreas had been involved with. A girl named Aliya who had to make a very difficult choice. I knew I wanted her to find her happily ever after. She was the springboard for the series. I was at the Imperial Palace Casino Resort in Biloxi and was having a blast with Maryann Jordan, I taught her how to gamble, and other writers at the Book signing event. So I thought it might be cool to have a series set in a casino. I grew up near a Native American Reservation as a child and my best friend, Tammy, is Native American. It kind of just all came together from there. Plus, I wanted to write another family saga as well. The series has been doing well recently and I am so glad to have new readers and fans as the final installment will be here before you know it. I hope you have been enjoying these books because they have been so fun to write. I’d love to hear back from you, maybe in a review on amazon??? HINT, HINT. What has been your favorite book in the series? Your favorite Sassacus so far?
