If I was one of those people who was at all organized I would carry a notebook with me to jot down ideas as they come, like writers are supposed to. But I'm not and I don't. When inspiration strikes I grab whatever is at hand. The idea for the third book in my Viking series came during mass about a year ago. Of course, I would never be so rude as to start jotting notes during the service, particularly if my wife and kids were watching, so I waited until it was over to scribble my thoughts down. Below is the genesis (pun intended) of my new book The Lord of Vik-lo, which I hope will be out in a couple of months.
