Some folks think of fan fiction as only for the geek at heart and sci-fi aficionados, but I’m here to tell you that playing in a universe that you didn’t create can be a real interesting trip!
I’ve written several novels now, but I’d never dipped my toe in the fan fiction waters. That is until I was given the chance to be a part of the new Kindle Worlds. When I heard Pretty Little Liars was one of the chosen universes I was excited to jump in. I wrote three short episodes in the Pretty Little Liars world for the launch, and I’m looking forward to continuing those stories.
The writing process was different, and not only from a length perspective, but when I write my novels I write from the characters view and I’m not those characters. But…when I was writing the Pretty Little Liars stories it was like I was transported to be Hanna, Aria, Spencer and Emily and that was so much fun for me.
If you’re not already a fan of the show, it’s a twisty, small town suspense. The folks in the town can’t keep a secret to save their lives, because no matter what they do the elusive “A” somehow knows and exploits it. The main characters, Hanna, Aria, Spencer and Emily, are in trouble up to their eyeballs and those writers keep you guessing every step of the way. Although the main characters are younger, this show is not just for the younger demographic. My mom is crazy about the show, too. Last week right after the show my phone rang. When I picked up it was my mother on the other end saying, “I can’t believe Hanna got caught!” It took me a second to realize she was talking about the show. She’s been bugging me to get the next story that follows SECRET TALENTS up. She’s as crazy about that handsome Zach as I am and she’s loving the Kindle Worlds story I made up for him.
