TVA: So, how long did Dark City take to research and write?
EM: Absolutely. The third Billy Nichols novel I've been working on it for like 12 years. I would definitely say that it takes longer to write the fiction. I've also written a lot of short stories and thats kind of a different thing. A novel is an epic. It takes years for me to get into it. A short story is different because it sometimes they can just come to you in a flash and it's like, oh, I get it because it's like a big extended scene or something, so you can write that pretty efficiently. It doesn't take as long as or, what I mean to say is very often my short stories may take me two or three days, as opposed to weeks or months, or in the case of the new novel years.
EM: I would certainly hope so. I would love to. I think Dark City Dames is more timely now than when I wrote that book. And as a book that is very dear to my heart because of the relationships that I formed with those women. So, yes I would love to see that come back and I expect it will.
