What If Questions Lead to Writing
And Your Book Deals
I’ve had some readers ask how I come up with ideas for my books. It can be a number of ways. A show I watch. A news program. A conversation.
Something puts my brain in overdrive—like when you are working a math problem and you find the answer so fast your not sure what steps you taken to get that answer.
My musings often fly through my brain so fast, I hardly recognized all the what ifs that I’m supposing until I get to the end.
And the end is often the beginning of the story.
Here are the thoughts that created the story What Used to be Texas.
What if there were rogue space station astronauts working on controversial experiments?
What if space stations were not the cramped living conditions we often are given glimpses of, but massive vessels capable of even larger experiments?
What is there are other groups, besides the governments, who managed to create a station that is built primarily for experiments that are not legal on earth?
The International Space Station has performed over 3,000 experiments. Imagine the scope of these experiments in the hands of the “bad guys”?
In space, there is no law.
Now what if something disturbed all the space stations, satellites, and junk up there—and there is A LOT, causing it all to fall to earth?
What if the people who remained after the event had to deal with everything that fell—including the results of the experiments?
I started the first full-length book to begin five years after the incident, what earth’s inhabitants, call The Fall. The event created huge explosions, uncontrolled fires, and destruction. Imagine a large piece of space debris hitting the nuclear plant near you.
The population has lived through what they thought was the worst of it. But they are beginning to realize that is not the case.
Something much worse has fallen from the night sky. Something that stalks them.
Do you “what if” about something like this?
The story of The Fall, and of Micheal and his family, is told in When Tomorrow Comes of the What Used To Be series. They live through the day—and night—of the event.
Micheal, a police officer, has the responsibility of keeping his family safe and doing what he can for his community.
