Sue-Ellen Welfonder: Readers of EDGE OF YESTERDAY will note the significance of crows. At one point during the writing of the book, I drove over a high bridge and a crow cruised along beside my car. He accompanied me across the entire bridge. As I usually see only pelicans near this bridge, I took him for a good omen.

SEW: There are several ‘rituals’ I do before I can head to my desk and write each day. I water the potted and hanging plants on my porch and deck. A cup of strong black coffee is a must. And I have to do my hula hooping and yoga.

SEW: I write in silence and edit to music, often movie soundtracks. Only instrumental, no voices. During the writing of EDGE OF YESTERDAY, I often played The Tudors soundtrack.

Tarah Scott: I also had a rather unusual experience with crows. One day, while waiting to pick up my daughter from school, I sat in my car working on a scene for Edge of Yesterday. I was deep in thought and only marginally aware of a flock of excited crows assembling in the small tree above me. Their excitement grew in intensity and I finally realized the large flock was flying around the tree, diving and making a lot of noise as if agitated. The tree was one of many in the line of small trees planted about five feet apart from each other on the median, yet the crows were only interested in my tree. I had to laugh, for the crows must have known that their namesake, our villain named Crowe, was making more trouble for our hero and heroine.

TS: Sue-Ellen and I didn’t spare Cailean’s male sensibilities on the wedding night in Edge of Yesterday. Some of you may be familiar with the medieval ‘viewing’ (and coaching) ceremony on the wedding night. As you can well imagine, Cailean had his work cut out for him when he had to consummate his marriage.
