Today my guest is Scott Jucha, author of The Silver Ships. Scott spent several years overseas, earned two college degrees, held many jobs, and found a wonderful marriage partner. Scott’s first attempt at a novel, entitled The Lure, was a crime drama centered around the surfacing of a 100-carat yellow diamond lost during the French Revolution. The story was set in modern Rio de Janeiro. So, in preparation for the book, he spent two weeks in 1980 researching the Brazilian people, language, and religious customs of Condomblé.

Over the next thirty-four years, he outlined dozens of novels, but a busy career as a senior manager in the industries of technical education and software development limited his efforts to complete a single one. Now, the time has come, and he’s thoroughly enjoyed planning, researching, and writing his first novel. What surprised him was the rapidity with which ideas poured forth once he began writing you could say the dam broke. While he was editing book one, books two and three quickly developed extensive outlines. And, while he was out for a walk and before book one was sent for final review, he had some thoughts for Hellébore, the fourth book in the series. Now, everywhere he goes he carries small tablets of paper and a pen. You just can’t risk losing that seemingly good idea when it occurs.
