I get asked a lot what my writing process is. Do I create the character first or the story? Am I a plotter or a panster?

Normally I have to answer that I'm a plotter and I always create the story first, or the outline of it at least, but for The Letter, things worked a little differently. A character arrived first, but it wasn't the hero, or even the heroine. Instead, the heroines dead fiance, a soldier killed in action, arrived to tell me his story. Or at least the part of it he wanted telling and strangely, for a character, that story was after he'd died.

I've always been fascinated by military history, and there are many stories in warfare of ghost soldiers. The sergeant who took the machine gun outpost on the beach and saved his section, yet never made it out of the landing craft. A comrade appearing out of nowhere to save a soldier who had gotten pinned down, yet that soldier later finds his rescuer had been died of injuries hours before. Angels perhaps, or men and women who didn't let a little thing like death stand in the way of their mission.

Like Billy. Billy Lees was a soldier. One who loved his girl very much. So much that he couldn't bear the idea of her being alone after he'd gone. Unlike most Billy wasn't going to leave it at that though, and move on past this life. He did something about it.

To find out what though, you'll need to read Billy's last story in The Letter.

Sergeant Rick Week’s career ended in a hail of bullets and the death of a friend. After months of recuperation, he’s finally able to fulfill a promise he made to that friend. All he has to do is find a girl and deliver a letter. Simple. Maybe…

Hattie Jameson lost the man she loved. KIA. A year and a half later, she’s trying to move on but a letter for a charity calendar shoot addressed to her late fiance, Billy, rocks her. Not as much as the sexy as hell Scottish soldier who turns up on her doorstep. The man who was with Billy when he died. She shouldn’t find him attractive. Not at all…

Meanwhile fate, and Billy himself, have plans to bring the reluctant lovers together.
