To My Reader: Some writers begin with characters and create conflict for them. The trio of main characters in Trefoil came at me backwards, as the ending unfolded to me first. I wrote the ending scene, and as I was writing, other scenes flashed through my mind. At the time, I didn’t yet have a computer, so the entire novel was written longhand on spiral notebooks. Thirteen in all, and in this case, I consider thirteen to be a lucky number. Trefoil was actually the first book I wrote after a long stint of writer’s block following our first child’s death, and at the moment of inspiration, I just knew I had to bring these characters to life. Writing had never been more than a hobby to me, but with the birth of these characters, a new passion rose inside me, fueling a drive to be published and share these stories with readers.
While writing Trefoil, I fell in love with a secondary character, Will Cochran, who told me his story of the phenomenon known as The Calling, which links immortals to their mates. So the first book of the Immortal Series—Runes—was written second. Speaking in terms of time, Trefoil fits between scenes of Runes.
Every character in the Immortal Series speaks deeply to me, and I can’t wait to reveal more of their stories. However, as the first book I wrote after a seven-year dry spell, Trefoil will always hold a special place in my heart.
