THOSE BAD, BAD BOYS by Rolynn Anderson

I’m a failed feminist.  Okay, that might be too harsh.  Maybe “Embarrassed Feminist,” is a kinder appellation.  Here I’ve written fifteen plus novels (soon to publish my fifth), and I haven’t crafted a female villain until FAINT, my third-in-a-series novel about a boutique funeral planner.

How did this happen?  What does it mean?  Is it ‘natural’ to create male villains or do I build bad guys because I’m a female?

This may be one of the problems with being a pantser as a writer.  My greatest joy is popping up in the morning, brewing a cup of coffee, sitting down to the computer and typing away.  I have no idea where my story is going until I write it.   Forget plans, outlines and advanced plotting.  Excitement for me comes with the surprises in store for me every time I write.

I didn’t set out to focus on bad boys, but I did.  How about you?  What percentage of your nasty characters are male?

P.S. Check out my first in the boutique funeral planner series, called FADEOUT.  Here’s where you’ll learn more about the book: or
