Saying Goodbye to Characters
When I set out to write about Mina Marley I had a set idea about how many books there would be and where I would take it, but out of all my characters I’ve ever written these ones have had so much of a life of their own. For example the series was originally called Micka and Me and was going to be solely about Mina and Micka’s love story, but by book three and the start of four, I began to realise that the title was a mis-sell. The story was developing and Mina was taking control of the story and it became all about her journey so I renamed the series The Mina Marley Chronicles.
Now I’m well on the way with book five, this should have been the final one with one spin off., but not the Supton clan want a sixth book and it seems to be a popular decision. So, just as I was getting ready to say goodbye to characters they are not done with me yet, which I don’t mind.
