Have you ever wondered… where do writers get their ideas from? Where do they go to whip up settings, build their characters, and weave story plots? Are there magical places, secret mathematical formulas, or is it as easy as swallowing a pill? I can’t speak for other writers but I can tell you, for the Dark Seeds series, the entire story came to me as a dream. Not all the characters with their individual, unique backstories, but the story you read from the very first book, Crows Hill, to the very last book, The Last Sparrow, played like a movie from start to finish in my mind while I slept, more than fifteen years ago. The dream returned several times before I sat down and wrote it, so I experienced the Dark Seeds before it ever found its way to paper. If you’d like to get the inside scoop, and see a glimpse to the other side of this story, then please visit Mysti Parker’s web site and read my piece titled Dreams.
