Exploring Disaster Crimes with Chrys Fey
July 11, 2014
This post will reveal things Chrys has never shared before about her writing. Are you ready?
Here are the questions and her answers:
1. What am I working on?
The sequel to my short story ebook, Hurricane Crimes. One reader asked me when the sequel would come out and a reviewer mentioned wanting to read a novel. At the time I thought, you’re nuts! But then I realized there was a lot I didn’t mention at the end of Hurricane Crimes, and that I could do far more. That thought sealed my decision to write not just a sequel but a series. Yes, a series!
2. How does my work differ from others of its genre?
There are countless romantic-suspense stories, and several take place during a storm or hurricane, but not many authors have used natural disasters as a continuing theme in their books as I plan to do. Not only that, but on top of the disasters there will also be crimes of nearly every kind, which is why my collection of books will be known as the Disaster Crime series.
3. Why do I write what I write?
I don’t feel like I have a choice. I do it because I love it, and also because the characters sharing brain space with me demand it. Romance is always a sub-genre in all of my stories, and I can’t get enough action and suspense in the books I read or the movies I write, so writing romantic-suspense was a no-brainer. I write in other genres as well, such as supernatural and science fiction. Supernatural is the genre that actually started me out on this crazy and wonderful writing journey.
4. How does my writing process work?
A lot of my stories usually start with an idea that manifests as a dream. The characters, who are destined to be part of that story, emerge soon after. Then, if I’m not working on something else, I begin writing and I don’t stop until I type “The End” at the bottom of the manuscript.
