Don’t we all have our vices, our absolute favorite plots and characters? For me,it’s more like move over bad boys and hello Mr. tall-dark-handsome - *sigh* I return to the subject at hand. Where was I? Oh, yes – waving a dismissing hand at all the other archetypes. You see, another mysterious type has caught my eye: the tortured soul. *Nods* yes, I’m aware of the elusive, yet undeniable mystic surrounding this man. He’s the type of hero that keeps you on your toes because you can’t quite put your finger on him and that’s just the way he likes it.

I remember walking around a corner in a village in Northland and knowing what was around the corner. All from a description in a book I’d read a long time before. It might not be the same for everyone, but for me, setting the scene is so important. If I’m reading a book set in ‘this world’, in a ‘real’ place, I want to be happy knowing it’s true to life. Oh not every private house, exactly where it is, or an exact description of every nook and cranny. However, I like enough to make me, as the reader, feel at home, or at least part of wherever it is. I immerse myself in a book ... Read More »
