Or, things you won’t necessarily see on the page in Pierced Peony.
First? I completely forgot Motts had grandparents who live next door to her uncle and auntie in Looe.
Completely and totally forgot two human beings exited in my novel.
And then, I had to rewrite parts to add them in, which ended up being a good thing. Her granddad made such a lovely addition. Her granny appears more in book three.
Second? Detective Inspector Dempsey Byrne surprised me. He had way more personality than I initially intended. He’s showing up quite a bit in book three so that’s fun.
Third? I kept mixing up two of the suspects’ names all the way through the book. No reason why. I knew their names but I still did it repeatedly.
Fourth? A Detective Inspector who knits cat sweaters is still my favourite thing ever.
