Fourth in a series, my email interview with The Story Behind the Book:
When was the adrenalin rush – writing that first chapter or the last and why?
Hands down, it’s the last chapter that holds the adrenaline rush. It takes me four months to hammer out a rough draft, four months of piecing the threads together, sweating the details, researching the fine points, patching the plot holes, and watching the characters take on their own destiny that might not be the one I originally envision for them. Seeing it all come together is a great feeling. Of course, it’s quickly followed by a sigh as I now have to start back over at page one and rewrite it, but that day that I actually write the last chapter? Yes, that’s a good day.
