Special Feature: Donna Schlachter Guest Post

Updated: Jun 18, 2020

In honor of the release of my debut novella, I have invited each of the other authors in the collection to write a post about the inspiration for their story.  Today, I’m pleased to share a post from Donna Schlachter, author of A Prickly Affair.

When I was writing my Bouquet of Brides story, “A Prickly Affair”, I found myself wanting to add in several different subplots—I guess that’s the suspense/mystery writer in me. But with the limited word count, there just wasn’t the room to do that. So I kept going back to the synopsis I wrote for the proposal, which kept me on track. This was a love story I was deeply invested in for several reasons, so I wanted it to be the best it could be. It’s not your typical romance story, but then again, I’m not your typical romance writer.
