The Night Runner series has been very special to me. When I wrote Don’t Bite the Messenger, it was deep winter in Alaska. For those of you who haven’t experienced it – the gradual darkening and growing cold – it’s pretty rough. Months of expanding darkness and deep cold take a toll on a person. Messenger was my escape – a book full of fast cars, vampires (both nasty and sexy), explosions, and Sydney Kildare, a heroine who would do whatever it took to get the hell out of dodge.
Running in the Dark was even more fun. For me. Maybe not for Syd, who I stuck low on a totem pole in a foreign place before surrounding her with uncertainty and homicidal enemies. Definitely not for Malcolm Kelly, who I saddled with responsibility and restrictions (two things the poor vampire loathes) so that he couldn’t carry Syd off into the sunset (you know what I mean) like he wanted to. But they fought, sometimes with each other but more often for each other, and they earned their place together.
And now I’m happy to announce the third book in the Night Runner series, Falling from the Light. This was a difficult book. Every time I struggled with a scene, it got worse for Syd and Mal. I struggled, a lot. And I finally got what I wanted. Nastier bad guys. Higher stakes. Rocks, hard places, and a whole lot of tough decisions. In this world, if you want a happy ending, you have to work for it.
