When I write, I tend to not like the parents of the hero and/or heroine to be around. Is there something psychologically significant there? But I fall into a rut like the parents were killed years ago in a car accident or something. I don't know, I just don't like spending a lot of time on what happened to the parents. I just want them gone! Hahah.

But in my current work, I've made my heroine's mother run off when he's three because the grandfather lost all his money and can no longer support them the way she likes. The hero never knew his father, so he's out of the pictures. The heroine is estranged from her father, even hates him, and her mother is off in Paris enjoying the high life.

So what's the deal with that? Why do I do it? Feel free to psychoanalyze me. Haha.

    My family picks on my because all my books have one thing in common: the hero's family is totally nuts! I don't know why. My dad takes it as an insult on his side of the family. Ha!
