What inspires you to write romance books?
I didn’t intend to write a romance novel, but some believe that the close relationships of the characters may have led the story in that direction.
“Vital Perception” is the second book in a two book series following “The Elder Effect”.

Tell us about how you write:
I use no outline a take very few notes when writing. The storyline and the characters fall into place as the book progresses.

Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
When I am writing, the characters walk in and out of the story as if I am watching them on television. When a new character is introduced it’s because I felt something or someone was missing.

What advice would you give other writers?
Just finish it!

How did you decide how to publish your books?
There are so many avenues to choose from. I guess it depends on what you are expecting and the amount of time you are willing to give.

What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Many people tell me that they still like their book in hand.

What genres do you write?
fantasy/fiction time travel

What formats are your books in?
Both eBook and Print

Vital Perception by D. L. Given

9781625102508large
The seeking tunnel started immediately with what looked like little effort. Heidi maneuvered it as if she were born to do it. The others stood motionless staring into its center ready to take control of it any second, and I knew at this point they could do it. The rate that we were improving was nothing if not impressive. Even I found myself calmer and maybe even looking forward to the next time we would gather to form a tunnel. I had never noticed before, but realized, I could actually feel the pull of what we were doing in my arms as far up as my elbows. It could effectively be described as an energy that could only be created by the union of so many with a unique ability or gift, something much greater than our selves. A sudden sense of purpose inundated me—a purpose I’m sure none of us understood. I felt a sense of urgency for some rationalization or explanation.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Proximately three days after I finished the rough draft on “The Elder Effect”, I realized I wasn’t satisfied with the completion of the story. Where “The Elder Effect” felt like a struggle to get the story told, “Vital Perception seemed to fill the pages faster than I could get the words down. It was a pleasure to spend time with the characters that I had become to love to dearly. I hope others will enjoy their story as well.
