Part #2 of our chat with bestselling author, Lori Foster! LUV: You write a lot of connected books like “The Buckhorn Brothers” or “The Men of Courage.” What’s the appeal? Is it harder or easier to plot stories as you move through the characters in the series? Lori: I don’t plan series, really. What happens is that secondary characters decide they need a book of their own and they won’t hush until I write them. Often I know immediately that a character will turn into a lead, and other times I’m taken by surprise. I’ve had characters I thought were evil who turn out to be good, and vice versa. In the case of the two series you mentioned, I knew with the first book in the series that each of the other main characters would get a story – but I didn’t know what the story would be until they told me. For the Buckhorn Brothers, each brother stood out immediately so there was no denying them. In the Men of Honor series, I knew about Dare, but not much about Trace – and I had no clue about Jackson, Arizona and especially Spencer. They showed up and tried to take over. It’s always easier for me to let a character have his or her way than to try to subdue them.
