The Ghost in the Water, Samuel Dexter, Book 2 is Live. This book was a long time coming. Over a year, in fact. The original premise came to me in a dream, and that's how Cindy was brought to life. Or death, since she's a little ghost. I knew the book would be MM, but I didn't know it would be about an interracial couple. And I didn't know I would fall so hard for these two guys. Dex and Orlando are so very real to me. Their lives, their struggles, everything about them, I feel deeply. When it came time to write book 2, they weren't ready because I wasn't ready. I was sitting down to write this sappy, easy-going story, and that's not where they were. Of course, they got through most of their struggles, but it didn't start off that way. When I was ready to listen, they were ready to talk.
Book 2 picks up where book 1 left off, and the mysteries withiin their stories were intriguing to me. I had the idea for one of the characters for months, but it took a bit of research before i was ready to write about a person with Dissociative Identity Disorder (formerly known as multiple personalities). I didn't want the whole focus of the book to be on that character, but I wanted to understand it enough to make her seem real. I hope I did Lindy justice.
If you like MM mysteries, I hope you'll take a chance on these books.
