How “Bruce” came to be

“Bruce” was born from the idea of a child wanting a playmate.

It was that simple. 

The Christmas after the loss of my husband was when this story idea came to me. It came to me in such a strong way and so quickly, that just scribbling ideas down was insufficient.

It wasn’t a story I was going to put on the back burner to write later. I grabbed my laptop and started writing there and then. I didn’t stop until draft one was completed.  The ideas flowed so quick and fast. 

My inspiration for this….a child I used to spend a lot of time with.  As I wrote, every word, action and mannerism, i could see through his eyes. My inspiration brought the story to life. 

Thank you to my inspiration.
