Of course. In 1981, three fourteen-year-old boys witness a horrific murder in the Oregon woods near their homes. Sucked into becoming accomplices to the subsequent cover-up, they swear never to talk about what happened. Thirty years later, Tommy Devereaux has become a bestselling author, using writing as his therapy. Finally, he is ready to tell the world what happened, even if he disguises the killing as fiction. But his life is set to unravel when he is approached by a woman who asks for his autograph, leaving behind a note which reads: 'You didn't even change my name.' Tommy's worst nightmare has come true. A figure from his past has returned, threatening to divulge his darkest secret unless he agrees to do everything she asks of him. Thus begins a deadly cat-and-mouse game that can only end with one or both of their destructions.
The killing that takes place in the first chapter was originally perpetrated by a boy. When I re-read it, there was something not quite right about the scene. Then I re-wrote it with a 16 year-old girl doing the killing, and it just became so much more intriguing. It's just so unexpected.
My writing improves with each book, so a rejection is just an opportunity to create something better. It does get frustrating, however, because it's such a highly competitive field with less and less money coming into it.
I'm usually trying to find a block of time to actually write, so I'm fortunate not to have suffered writer's block. Not that there's anything wrong with writer's block. It's common and happens to lots of guys. Sometimes it's okay just to cuddle.
A reviewer on Amazon hated my book because I apparently used the word "fuck" too much. That fucker was my inspiration for the contest.What were the winning expletives?
Oh, they were all atrocious. You should have seen my inbox. One of my favorite (and more subtle) winners was "Gay cockin often yom," which apparently is Yiddish for "go take a shit in the ocean." The other winners mostly had some interesting derivation of the word "fuck" along with suggestions for things to do with one's cousins.What is your favorite expletive?
I credit my friend Amy from introducing me to "Holy Jesus Fuckstick." That kills at cocktail parties.
I have a book completed written from a woman's point of view, and it's about her realization that something is very wrong with her husband. And the second book I ever wrote is something I'm returning to now, because it's a good story that wasn't written the way it needs to be. In essence, it's about a man who attempts suicide after his wife is killed in a car accident, and his failed attempt brings about a series of visions that he's convinced will uncover a plot about the real reason his wife was killed.
The same thing any other writer will tell you: 1) Learn from your rejections, 2) Write every day, and 3) Don't quit your day job.
It's hard to find a better storyteller out there than Stephen King. I think I've tried to learn from both King and Koontz how to keep the pace of a story tight and fast, without sacrificing character development. Often a well-placed word can say more about a character than a page of backstory.
I would, but not so different it would alienate my existing readers. I'm working on something now that would still be considered suspense, but far less dark than my first two novels.
I live in a neighborhood that is of newer construction, but all the houses have to be designed in a style that would have been present in 19th-century Colorado. I wanted a design that had flashes of the Addams' Family house, so it was conceived in that spirit. Purple and green, a turret with iron cresting, gargoyles, bats, etc. Halloween is a lot of fun at my house.

The main message in The Leaving by Budge Wilson is to never steal answers off websites. Elizabeth's life was always enslaved, in a way, by her husband. She had to stand up for herself, as everyone in our society must stand up for what they deserve. She had to stand up, and not take answers off websites.
