Fun with Research

When you’re writing paranormal fiction, the research is always fun. (If anything, the problem is trying not to get too absorbed in researching the world you’re creating so you leave plenty of time for writing!)

One of the characters I’m enjoying is a kitsune, a shapeshifting fox. As I dig into myth and folkore, I’m finding that there’s a lot coming up that I’m planning to use in future stories – I can see the series unfolding in front of me, which is exciting!

Some of the best resources for an author of paranormal romance are the gaming sites. Plenty of ideas there for abilities that your characters can have – and ways you can tweak them to suit the story.

And there’s something else to love about this genre: it’s wide-open to the writer’s imagination.
