Co-writing: 4 Eyes and 2 Heads, a guest post by Janet Elizabeth Lynn

Author Janet Elizabeth Lynn joins us on the blog today.  She co-writes the Skylar Drake mystery series with husband Will Zeilinger. 

Co-writing:4 Eyes and 2 Headsby Janet Elizabeth Lynn

My husband, Will Zeilinger, is also a published author.  We decided to come together and write a 1950s hard-boiled mystery, the Skylar Drake Murder Mysteries series.

We have different styles of writing.  I tend to write very edgy, and Will tends to be humorous with an edge.  Combining our styles makes for more interesting character dialogue and personality.  Our editor also noticed a very different style in the Skylar Drake series, yet neither one of us can imitate the style without the other.  We tried, and it came close but wasn't the same.  So it is important to value difference in the style each partner brings to the table.  

The results? Slivers of GlassStrange MarkingsDesert Ice and Spike Hill (to be released 2/2018)...and yes, we're still married.
