Some people who’ve already read my book, asked me where the inspiration for the story came from. They wanted to know how much of it I have drawn from my own experiences.
Initially I wanted to reply ‘It’s about vampires duh!’ But then I got thinking. I guess we all play off our own experiences to some extent. I would say more of it came from my own life than I care to admit to. I have also been inspired by the wonderful places I have visited over the years and the unique people I have met along the way. People I know, or have known motivated most of my characters. I even used their real names initially, that way I could picture them clearly all the way through. It was easier for me to know how the character would react to each situation I put them in, knowing the person that lay behind them. Is that cheating? I don’t know 😉
