Have you ever just been bopping along, doing your own thing, and suddenly one of your novels (or a character) just walks up and slaps you in the face?
That’s what happened to me earlier today.
I was scrolling through Face Book clicked on a link someone had shared and found this article.
My first thought was of Marsden from The Academy of the Accord because that is soooo something he would do. (If, of course, he was a cop in today’s world, but that’s a minor trifle.)
The part with the hand on the shoulder and “Easy… I’ve got this one, son” is what really made me think of Marsden. That is something he would say and do and the description is spot on too, although he’s not quite that old – at least, not at the start of the series.
So, while it was really cool to come across that, now I want to get back to work on The Academy of the Accord. That’s not necessarily a bad thing, but Onyx Sun is still supposed to be on the front burner.
I think maybe I need a staff of ghost writers…
