Rebecca Rogers, legal secretary by day, reader and writer by night, shares the story behind her debut novel, Silver Moon, the first in a trilogy. It is available from Amazon.
"Some might ask when I began writing, or what actually sparked my desire to write a novel. The truth is: I can’t give a defining moment. I’ve been writing for as long as I could form sentences. Growing up, I was influenced by several different authors/books: Little House on the Prairie, Goosebumps, anything by Lois Duncan or Annette Curtis Klause, and, of course, Harry Potter.
My first book, Silver Moon is about werewolves. How did Little House on the Prairie evolve into werewolves? As I’ve grown as a reader and writer, my tastes varied from one genre to the next. By diving into different worlds, I’ve been able to broaden my imagination. I’ve learned all writing styles are different, and that no matter how much they resemble each other, they’ll never be exactly the same. Each has its own personal fingerprint.
