Family! No one can push your buttons faster or make you crazier than your family can. It's because they know you better than anyone else. They know what makes you laugh, what makes you cry and what you're passionate about. They know your weaknesses and your strengths.
That's what makes it so fascinating to write family sagas. Whether the family is a farming family in Maine, brothers in a futuristic world, or vampires. The fact remains, that family dynamics always makes for an interesting mix.
Some families get along well...others, not so much. Either way, it's challenging and rewarding to write about. It adds a layer of realism to any work, plus it allows the writer access to all sorts of emotional situations and tension.
Plus, I'm a sucker for writing series. With a family involved there is always plenty of opportunity for more books.
