So happy to be able to let everyone in on how I came up with the idea for my story Afterlife.
My new story Afterlife is featured in a Valentine's Day Anthology: Be My Everything.
About the Book:
Scotlynn Marjun, a psychic medium, is finally turning her life around
when she opens up her shop called Afterlife where she helps clients –
both living and dead – find peace, but then a past love shows up to
shake things up. Marshall Kingston is rich, handsome, and a real
charmer, but when his stepmother plans his murder, he seeks his
ex-girlfriend’s special talents to bring justice to his family. Murder. Mayhem. Ghosts. Valentine’s Day promises to be an adventure of a lifetime.
Now for how the idea came to be.
I am a Massage Therapist and I believe in ghosts. Lets just get that out there before I go any further. One day at work, while I was massaging a client, I kept feeling something brush up against my leg and it kept freaking me out. So of course my mind instantly goes to there must be a ghost in the room.
I laugh now at myself for thinking that. I mean why would a ghost be inside the Massage Room? When I get up from my stool, I feel something brush up against my leg again. When I look down, I realize it's the sheet! I couldn't help but silently giggle at myself. At this point my writer's cap goes on and my mind starts racing with ideas.
After leaving the room, I had the idea of a woman who is a Massage Therapist who could not only see ghosts but is also a psychic. The rest of the story fell into place when I started writing. I really enjoyed writing this story. Scotlynn has to be my favorite woman character I've written thus far.
Scotlynn is smart, gorgeous and very strong willed. Everyone loves a strong female heroine and I feel Scotlynn fits that description.
I plan on writing more stories with Scotlynn and I can't wait to share them with you.
