Dakota got back rights to a series that a publisher hadn’t acted on.


For a mentally stable writer, it may be difficult to accurately portray an antagonist who has a warped mind (none of us are warped, of course).    Peter James offers advice on how to write those warped minds.  Some tips on insane characters.  And more advice on writing psycotic characters.

Insanity is relative. It depends on who has who locked in what cage.  ~ Ray Bradbury

I don’t suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it! ~Edward Hastings Ford
