Final stages of editing for Variant. The beginning of the end.
Delilah and Carne first came about how all my characters come about – I hypothesised on current scientific and biological advances, then where our choices would take those advances.
By the third generation in any great familial event the fractured consequences become visible.
Volatile and co-dependent their relationship may be, Carne and Delilah survive because of it.
Our relationships shift the world, to not include the depth of them in my writing would do the story a disservice.
So the romance is dark, suffocating and pulse-pounding.
Sweetness makes my skin crawl and belies deception.
I like it honest.
Hope you do too!!
