Names?? by Melissa Keir Guest Blogger

Readers often ask authors where they get their ideas from. They want to know where these stories come from. My stories are a combination of dreams, real-life experiences, and just plain fiction. I love hearing from readers about what they think is the “real” part of my stories.
The second question most readers ask is how do you come up with a name. As a teacher, I have over twenty years of students and names to draw from. I love using names of people I know in my stories. But I must point out…my characters are my imagination. They are not the same as a student, just because I use a name.

In my Pigg Brothers Series, I used the name Pigg for the heroes. They are three brothers who are private eyes and police detectives. The first book was a play on the story, The Three Little Pigs. The heroine in “Protecting His Wolfe” is Betsie Wolfe. As I tell my students all the time, some of my favorite books are retellings of popular fairy tales. Bigfoot Cinderella and Dinorella are retellings of Cinderella with unique characters.

And Protecting Her Pigg is available in the Summer Heat box set—also 99 cents! With each of these sets, you get not only my stories but also other fabulous authors.
