When Two Ideas Collide (inside your head)

But why would an alien from another galaxy be in New Orleans....

Core Punch happened when two ideas collided inside my head. The first idea came from Heather Massey, who manages The Galaxy Express blog. She mentioned wishing that someone would write a noir science fiction romance. Well, I don’t write noir, but I have been working on a contemporary romantic mystery series called The Big Uneasy. I considered Heather’s suggestion and found myself wondering what a future New Orleans would be like….

Bam. My mystery/science fiction romance mash-up began to swirl inside my brain. I knew if it was New Orleans and there was a cop, then said cop needed to be a descendant of my Bakers from The Big Uneasy. But if this was the future…what if there was also a descendant from one of my characters from Project Enterprise?


But why would an alien from another galaxy be in New Orleans….

At some point, every book begins with a question and that was the defining question of Core Punch. The answer to that question is an adventure. A serious hosing in the middle of a hurricane. And a little romance, because you know I love the romance.

So if you’ve read either (or both) series, there is a little somethin’ something in Core Punch for you. And I hope if you haven’t read either series, you can still enjoy Core Punch as a standalone story. 🙂

This series (An Uneasy Future) will be a little different for me (I know, I always say that, but this time I mean it). For one thing, the books will be shorter, so that I can write them faster. That’s a good thing, right? Hey, when I write BABs (Big A** Books), it takes me a year or more. So faster is better for all of us.  I also want the series umbrella to be big, in case I get spin-off ideas from my, um, spin-off.

So, for now, the series is An Uneasy Future, which is all about Vi and Joe. But, if I “meet “someone interesting, I can riff off and write about them. 🙂

So have you ever had two ideas collide inside your head?


Perilously yours,
