Guest Post by Carol Kravetz
As an adult, my interest in reading never waned. Eventually, I began to dream that if anyone like Danielle Steel or Stephen King could write a book, then so could I. I often paraphrased sentences with “I’m going to put this in my book” or, “I’m going to put that in my book” until I was advised quite strongly to stop procrastinating and just start writing. So that’s what I did.
My characters were dreamed up long before I had a solid storyline. I had always wanted to be a Police Officer but back in the late ‘70s, the Northern Ireland Police Service, the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), now known as the Police Service Northern Ireland (PSNI) had a height restriction of 5’4” for a policewoman. Unfortunately, I didn’t grow any taller than 5’2”. The older I became, the more disheartened I was at not being able to follow my childhood wishes of being a police officer and eventually I came up with the plan that if I couldn’t be one, then I could at least write about one. Or, in my case, I could write about two policemen and two policewomen.
I had a vague idea of what I wanted to write, but, because it was before the advent of the internet, I had no real means of doing proper research and working full time as a medical secretary didn’t exactly give me the time to make phone calls or go to the local library anytime I wanted. I persevered with whatever knowledge I had, or could find in bookstores and, eventually, I sat down and started writing in long hand the bare bones for the first book. I only had a clear idea on how the story was going to end. The beginning and the middle had to be carefully thought out so that it could all tie in.
Needless to say, my first book went through many changes before it became the novel it is today. However, the storyline remained more or less the same and the characters were exactly the same as they had been at the very beginning of my writing adventure. I learned quite quickly to develop my characters and wanted to make them likeable, have them be the sort of people readers could respect, and root for, and feel for when life threw them all curve balls.
