With These Words - Rhonda L. Print

Why I write paranormal

I always wanted to write a book and when my last child was in the first grade I decided it was time. I love reading paranormal romance and always found myself thinking about what I would have done differently, or what if this happened.

The ‘what ifs…’ got me and before I knew it, Leah, Ian and Joaquin were born. The characters just came to life in my head and demanded to be put on paper.

I began doing research on the various aspects of the paranormal when I decided to write Nightwalker, A Leah Wolfe SINS Novel. The possibilities are limitless and what fascinated me most was how many myths are based on fact. It’s kind of like the chicken and the egg. Which came first, myth or reality. Dating back as far as the fifteenth century there are legends of vampires, half-man/half-animal beasts and zombie infections. A Countess, who murdered hundreds of young women from her village to bathe in their blood and retain her youth and beauty, graves exhumed and the corpses showing no signs of decomposition and containing fresh blood, vaccinations to cure the human vampiric virus and witches burnt at the stake.

The idea of bringing those things to life in a modern day society fascinated me. How would they hide? How would they fit in? Could they exist undetected? What or who would they eat? Would they fall in love? I let all of these questions and many, many more roll around in my head and added a healthy serving of imagination.

Each goal was a learning process. It began with writing the book then on to creating a synopsis and query letter. I had to learn how to submit it and who to submit it to. My wonderful editor, Sharis walked me through the process of ironing out all the wrinkles and the cover artist April brought a face to the characters that had been talking in my head for months. All the while the unending support of my family and friends to push me along when I slowed, dried my tears when I got rejections and listened to me rant when my characters weren’t behaving themselves.

Nightwalker, A Leah Wolfe SINS Novel was born.

I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it. Please feel free to pop over to my blog www.rhondaprint.blogspot.com or my web page www.RhondaLPrint.com and leave me a comment or ask a question. I love hearing from my readers and look forward to chatting with you.
