Because people keep asking where I get ideas, gotta admit, many are based on experiences of friends, relatives, myself, and total strangers I see doing odd things.
Anyway, the short story titled Smashed, and included in the Rock’s Dogs anthology, involves Mudflat’s smash wizard. And the idea? My sister came out of the grocery store and opened the door of her car and started screaming. When you read this story, you’ll know why. All I had to do was make up the who.
The idea for the short story titled Steampunk Man, and included in the Wicked Good Stories anthology, was inspired by a local steampunk group, with a description of one of their meetings. All I had to do was send Mudflat’s Nicotiana to the meeting.
