Last week I told you I turned a snafu into an opportunity to rewrite my latest book, the lesbian thriller Till Darkness Comes. Now I’ll give you two reasons I love detectives:
- In fiction, anyone can be a detective.
- Detectives fit in both mysteries and thrillers.
I’m adding a detective to my thriller! And I found her sitting there in the pages already waiting for something to do. I changed her name, and now she has a much bigger role to play than the friend of the protagonist. I hope she’s as excited about this turn of events as I am! (Yes, I’m one of those writers whose characters become as real people to the writer.)
What’s new in your own life? Any major job changes? Name changes? New characters peopling your books? Do tell.
