About ten or so years ago, while I was in college, my other half bought me a funny little button pin from a little used bookstore. What was on it--C.P.A. (for Certified Public Assassin)--sparked an idea for a story. I wasn't sure if it would be a short story or novel. I tried several times to find the right way to write the character.
After I read John Ringo's The Last Centurion, I think I found it. I'm also doing a bit of a blog to go with it, just to help me get the character right in my head before I write the actual book. The blog is Molly McGuire's Mumbles and Mutters. The first post, introducing the character and her life, is here.
Y'all can go read if you want.
