I had and am having! Got time for a Big Idea? I got a cheap piano there are such things and started taking lessons. But there was a strange thing going on. Time does indeed seem to be the quintessential Big Idea, the white noise behind all we do. Time happens without our consent, it happens without our noticing.
Time is, in fact, our alternate reality. Had we used our time differently, we would have been different. But what if we had more time? What if, in fact, we could purchase time? What would you do? Yes, we all want to live and our urge to save ourselves overwhelms our urge to save others. But if you could dip here and there—a few minutes, say, from everyone on earth—would you do it? A few minutes? Who would miss a few minutes? In my latest book, In Search of Lost Time, my main character has the ability to steal time, and possibly also the resources to get it to the people who need those minutes the most—the dying, for instance.
To complicate matters, some people know she can steal time. You can go for days without food or water, but not without time. The underground knows who she is, as do some people who are running out of their own time. Who will she help, and how does the whole thing work, anyway? But there just might be someone who knows what to do about this strange ability she has, how to figure out a strategy for the most valuable thing there is. Can she avoid getting even more involved?
Michel de Montaigne - Wikiquote
But enough about her. If the world were starving but you could grab a few grains of rice from everyone else in order to survive, would you do it? Is just a little bit of theft really theft at all? Would you share what you stole—and how? How would you choose who to save?
The Big Idea gets personal. After four novels, and two novella collections, The Harbors of the Sun is the last book in the Books of the Raksura series. The first book in the series, The Cloud Roads , came out in , after taking two years to find a publisher. It was the book of my heart, a book that in many ways I had always wanted to write. But at first, nobody seemed to want to publish a book with no humans in it, where the main characters were matriarchal bisexual polyamorous flying shapeshifting lizard-lion-bee people. Go figure!
I always felt that despite having non-human protagonists, the themes of the series were universal. Like finding a family and a home and protecting it against outside attack and environmental pressure. Learning to trust when suspicion, paranoia, and pretending to be anything other than what you are have been your main survival traits. Learning to fit into a complex society and web of relationships that seem almost impossible to understand.

How hard it is to leave your past behind. I put a lot of my own feelings of isolation into the story. After years of trying, I felt like I had captured that feeling with the Raksura. And even though I had gotten the Indigo Cloud Court settled in the Reaches and mostly happy, I still wanted to explore more of the Three Worlds with these characters. I wanted Moon and Jade and the others to go on an adventure outside the relative safety of the colony trees, and to explore the conflict between the Raksura and the predatory Fell.
I wanted to take the characters and the reader on a journey to find out more. I wanted to push the boundaries as far as I could. These are still the books of my heart, and the books I always wanted to write, ever since I was that little kid in the public library. First books in a series are often easy to write — fresh ideas, new characters, cool situations.
What about the second books, where you have to continue with the rules you already set out? How do you keep it fresh for the readers, and the author? Sometimes ideas come easy. For example, walking out of a movie theater many moons ago after having seen The Grudge , I had the thought that if being violently murdered can turn someone into a murderous vengeful spirit, then what about the spirits of the people murdered by said vengeful spirit? What if instead of taking their anger out on innocent people they instead turned on the ghost that killed them in the first place?
That idea stuck with me and eventually grew into the plot of my debut novel, Restless Spirits. When it came to writing a sequel, however, nothing was so easy or clear cut. Kindred Spirits actually took me years to write because although there were a few things I knew for certain, none of those things added up to a story. I also knew that I wanted the second book to stand on its own two legs, to be a self-contained story that could be understood and enjoyed without needing to have read its predecessor.
This seemed like a tall order. That character became Derek Brandt, a cynical TV crime reporter who believes he has a duty to expose Chris as a fraud. Which leads to the question: what would Big Sis do to someone who went after Chris in such a way? The answer: haunt him, of course. At which point hijinks would ensue. It was only a starting point. It occurred to me that here I had an opportunity to explore the flip side of that idea—that love can be twisted into a destructive force by twisted, broken people, used as both an impetus and an excuse for evil actions.
With that central idea in place, other characters quickly came into being and their motivations and goals became clear. Derek Brandt, as it turned out, had good reason for his cynicism and distrust of Chris Wilson and her ilk. He also had a brother, whose unsolved murder became the central plot. That story turned out to be quite the mashup. The romance and comedy came naturally, as did the darker supernatural and suspense aspects of the book.
As someone who grew up bouncing back and forth between the likes of Lucy Maude Montgomery and Stephen King, I tend to have a wide range of sensibilities that creeps into my writing. The mystery part, however, challenged me and took me places that as a writer I never expected to go. Giving the killer layers, with sympathetic motives that make him or her seem like a human being and not a Disney villain, was also a concern.
And now, here she is, to remember to you, in words, why they were important to her story. There are key moments and motifs in fiction that we latch onto as readers, and as writers. Symbolic scenes that loom large for us because they connect in some deeper way with our own buried nightmares and past traumas. For me one of those moments is in C.
I think it terrifies me because the vulnerability and powerlessness of that moment is so crushing and absolute. In Never Now Always , I set out to explore the terror of that moment. And also to face it and conquer it, putting my characters in the same predicament, yet giving them tools to fight. So the story centers on Lolo, a child who finds herself trapped in a mysterious labyrinth under the supervision of a horde of voiceless alien Caretakers.
She is surrounded by many other children, but none of them know how they ended up there, or what happened before. And as the Caretakers subject the children to psychological experiments focused on trauma and memory, their ability to form short-term memories is limited, too. Everything they learn, or think they learn, just slips between their fingers like water. Then Lolo hits on the concept of writing — scrawling drawings and pictographs as simply as possible, designed to represent these fleeting pieces of story to her future self. For me, as the writer of the novella, it was more complicated.
In some ways every scene felt like a first scene. There are gaps in this story, and continuity errors. But I also realized that while I wanted my reader to feel somewhat disoriented, I could not let them remain as disoriented as the characters, because that would really not be an enjoyable story to read. So I also ended up depending heavily on language to do the work — I tried to anchor everything in touch and taste and feelings, always in the present tense, a language reinvented for children whose sense of time is confined to a narrow slice of perpetual now.
And in that perpetual now is where I think my characters — and I, myself — find redemption and solace. Because love is deeper than language. As always, my dog is wiser than I am. So I gave Lolo a dog, too, to help her figure it out. Sometimes you get the big idea for the story. My first idea excited me and got that fire of creativity going.
I wanted to play with the Dexter notion—the serial killer who feels conflicted about it. A character who loves killing in rather inventive ways, who thrives off violence, but has enough of a glimmer of a conscious to want to change. We as humans love staring into that darkness. The first big idea: serial killer lost in dream drugs. I knew this book would be more violent than my other work and have some cool, trippy dream sequences. I also wanted to build on the world I created in False Hearts , which came out last year the Pacifica novels are a series of standalones set on the West Coast of the formerly United States.
This book is set in Los Angeles instead of San Francisco. The series blends psychological thriller and near future tech, with a big nod at 80s and 90s cyberpunk. Shattered Minds has hover cars, floating skyscrapers and mansions, bright moving ads against the sides of buildings. People can change their appearance at will thanks to flesh parlours. Moving tattoos are etched on their skin, and their eyes might glimmer in the dark from extra implants.
I wrote Shattered Minds , and the plot worked, for the most part. Carina scared me, but not quite as much as the villain, Roz if you watch Orphan Black , Rachel is a big inspiration for her. I did a lot of research on serial killers, especially female ones, and neuroscience, hacking, corporate espionage, and more. But something was missing. All the pieces were there, made sense, but it was just.
And that was terrifying. This was going to be my fifth published book. This is where good editors are worth their weight in gold. Together, we found the second big idea to bring the project back to life. It became a Frankenstein retelling. I struck the thing with lightning, basically har, har. In the first draft, Carina was a serial killer just because. In the next draft, Roz experimented on Carina when she was a teen, reprogramming her brain to be cool and collected—the perfect unbiased scientist, unbothered by things like empathy or ethics. Carina started feeling things again, with the side effect of her also wanting to kill everything around her.
Now Roz has a much stronger reason to want to take down Carina rather than just greed. Carina is the broken experiment that much be eradicated. The one who got under her skin. The next draft just worked. I loved editing Shattered Minds as much as I had hated writing the first draft. Scenes slotted into place, Carina and Roz finally worked, circling each other like sharks. It was glorious fun to make my dark, bloody book even darker and more twisted.
Sometimes, maybe a book needs more than one big idea. Maybe something is missing in the first draft and you just need to add a little lightning to revitalise the corpse. Chen , maybe you think about setting a novel there. I had totally forgotten this until I went to see a 20th anniversary screening this year yes, we really are that old , but it must have been stewing in my subconscious all that time.
Every habitat needs to be pressurized and climate-controlled anyway, so it can be as tropical as residents want. The only downside is that your family will have even more excuses for not visiting. Using the moon as a setting also let me put characters in a wider variety of awkward situations. Most of the first novel took place in a single location—a cruise spaceship traveling from Earth to Mars—but each hemisphere of the moon is roughly as wide across as the entire continental United States.
Add a futuristic high-speed subway connecting population centers, and a reckless secret agent can get into plenty of trouble all over the place. If you want continuous free electricity to power a transportation network, put solar panels on mountaintops near the north pole; if you want to keep something hidden, bury it under the deepest crater at the south pole. And, of course, I had to include visits to at least a couple of Apollo landing sites, which are preserved as historical museums in this future.
Everybody wants to stand on the Lunar surface, see the Earth rise over the horizon, and cover that blue marble with their thumb. But back to aging on the moon. It seems possible that humans could naturally live longer in low gravity environments. Of course, the most important scientific question raised in Kangaroo Too is: could we actually keep chickens on the moon, and therefore have fresh eggs? The only way to know for sure is to establish a Lunar base and start breeding livestock up there.
Make me a liar, Fish! For The Last Good Man , author Linda Nagata decided to take a risk with one of her characters, who is not the usual sort for the literary milieu Nagata has her story inhabit. Who is this character? And what were the repercussions of that risk? In the early days it was nanotechnology, cryonics, the vastness and wonder of space, biotech, and artificial worlds. My settings would regularly shift between near future and far. Not exactly. I made another abrupt turn and dove into military science fiction with the Red trilogy—high-tech thrillers published by Saga Press in The books were well-reviewed.
The first volume was a Nebula-award nominee and named as a Publishers Weekly best book. It seemed logical to follow up on that seeming success so I resolved that for the first time I would approach my next book with a little market savvy. I would write another military-themed story, again with a near-future, high-tech setting. Next, it occurred to me that if I set the new book even closer to the present time, I might have a chance of pushing beyond the science fiction genre and making inroads into the military thriller market.
The Red trilogy was written around a unit of US Army soldiers. Following that similar-but-different philosophy, I decided the new novel would involve a private military company, because that would allow for more freedom with the plot. Even with the benefit of hindsight, this all still makes sense to me. But in selecting my protagonist, I embarked on a major gamble.
My version of brainstorming is to engage in swiftly typed stream-of-consciousness question-and-answer sessions. I was brainstorming the possible identity of my main protagonist when I typed this:. Generally speaking, middle-aged women are not considered to be cool main characters of the sort that commonly inhabit techno-thrillers. So this was a perfect example of the creative and logical parts of my mind contending with one another.
The logical part immediately recognized the risk, but the obstinate, defiant, creative part turned out to be in charge. Later on, in the same session, I typed:. I liked her—at that stage it was just the idea of her—because she was an atypical protagonist for the sort of book I wanted to write. I felt as if a gauntlet had been thrown down and I wanted to pick it up, accept the challenge, and write a riveting but realistic story about a can-do, older woman.
I knew it was a market risk. Of course there is a lot more going on in this novel. The Last Good Man is a fast-paced, high-tech, military thriller that deals with autonomous weapons, big data, A. But from the first day that the story truly started to take shape, I knew it would be centered on a woman. Middle age is an interesting time. There can be more freedom as children reach adulthood, but there is also a sense that time is getting short and that old age with all its limitations is just around the corner.
True feels the pressure of time, and she also carries an extra burden. She is haunted by the death of her oldest son, a soldier too, who was brutally killed in the line of duty. This was a challenging novel to write, I think in part because deep down, I doubted the marketability of it from the start. Somewhere along the way though, it became a novel I needed to write.
Still, my doubts were not misplaced. No one said specifically, Middle-aged mom? No way! But it was implied that marketing The Last Good Man would be a challenge that no one quite knew how to handle. Then, not wanting to leave her remains for the peasants to find, he puts them in a basket, weighs it down with stones, and throws it into the sea. There goes the Bride of Frankenstein…. I was studying Frankenstein and his creature because I was writing a doctoral dissertation on late Victorian gothic monsters—Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Late Victorian gothic is like a wonderfully fearsome labyrinth. The fun is in exploring. Bonus: lots of sexual subtext from an era when books about same-sex romantic relationships were still banned. And where would that leave Queen Victoria, I ask you? No wonder the novel has to get rid of her. Beatrice gets more sympathetic treatment than other monstrous women—she is, at least, a romantic heroine.
But she too dies in the end. They all do. In the second edition, the ending was rewritten perhaps by Stoker, perhaps by his editor , and she too is exterminated. Perhaps most strangely, women creep into these works even when not officially present. The field of monster literature is strewn with female bodies. But female monsters are presented as particularly dangerous. Frankenstein does not complete his creation because she might breed with the male monster, and their progeny might outcompete man.
Carmilla must be destroyed specifically because she threatens the good women. She might—gasp—turn them into monsters like herself! So the big idea behind my novel is really very simple: the female monsters did not die. But it started with the idea that female monsters have served, throughout literary history, as supporting characters for primarily male stories.
The late nineteenth century was particularly obsessed with monstrous women, as we can see from the many pre-Raphaelite and Aesthetic paintings of these mythical figures. He failed in the worst way. Roth and I are on an open-ended tour of the world.
