On merry (gothic) Christmases and my messy writing approach

Flame Tree Publishing has posted the second round of author Q&A for Christmas Gothic, this time with about half the responses listing other dark holiday tales the contributors enjoy, and the rest about some of our writing processes.  I admit to the inherent mess of my own process, from my chicken scratch handwriting to my disorderly, complete-the-jigsaw-no-matter-what-it-takes mental jumping around.  Hey, it gets the job done!

Do not be fooled by my cheery props. This is a book for readers who like a dark streak mixed into the holidays.
