Did vampires help us win the American Revolution? That was the question that popped into my mind when I was brainstorming ideas for my first paranormal, SEX & THE SINGLE VAMP while I strolled the streets of Colonial Williamsburg with my family. Not the path of inquiry I would normally take when planning a sexy, dark romance between two vampires but it sparked an idea that just wouldn’t let me go.

Now, at some point over the years, Dickey may have explained his thought process in an interview or at a speaking engagement, but I know nothing about the man. But it doesn’t matter because for every author out there I’m sure there’s a different answer for how authors get from an idea to a fleshed-out book. Some authors get stuff from headlines (which is one I’ve used), some write from personal experiences (my life is way too boring to even consider this as a viable option), some have “muses” (my personal neurosis won’t let me have a muse. It’s too close to a mild form…
