The Eighties Rocked!

The one question writers are most often asked is: Where do you get your ideas? The answer, of course, is everywhere--the news, movies, dreams, and as Rebecca York and Joanna Wayne blogged below, real life.

Back in the eighties when I first began to seriously consider a professional writing career, music was a huge influence on me. My first book was inspired by the Echo and the Bunnymen song, "The Killing Moon." It's still one of my favorite songs, and after more than twenty years, I'm afraid it's held up better than my book.

So without further ado, I present the very eighties-looking cover of my first book, and the still fabulous video of "The Killing Moon".

  1. Of course, my first werewolf book is called KILLING MOON! So I get a kick out of seeing your cover. A very different story.

  2. It's a good title. Very visual (I think).
