    The Perils and Joys of Research


I got the idea for a trilogy set in Seattle as I worked on my Alaska Trilogy.  Nick Brodie needed a place to work and live, so I created Brodie Operations Security Services, BOSS Inc, the guys called it. 
In the office, I put two more Brodies, cousin Ethan and cousin Luke.  INTO THE FIRESTORM is Luke Brodie’s story.  What made it fun and interesting was the twist it took during the research phase. 
Luke Brodie is a bounty hunter.  A fat $600,000 is the 20% bail enforcement fee he'll collect if he brings in international criminal, Rudy Vance. 
Emma Sullivan is also hunting Vance.  It's been almost a year since she arrived at her sister's home to find the housekeeper murdered and her young niece the victim of Vance's sick assault. 
Emma is determined to find Vance and make him pay.  And no one--not even the infamous Luke Brodie--is going to stop her.
There was plenty of story to work with, but as I was developing the plot, I stumbled across an interesting tidbit.  Turns out there is a group in Seattle called the Yakuza, an organization often referred to as the Japanese Mafia.
What caught my eye was that members of the group are completely tattooed--even their genitals!  I thought, wow, wouldn’t they make interesting bad guys?
So the thing about research is that it can twist your story in unexpected directions.  It’s difficult but the results can be astonishing. 
I hope you'll watch for Luke and Emma in INTO THE FIRESTORM, book #3 in the BOSS, Inc. Trilogy.  And if you haven’t read INTO THE FURY and INTO THE WHIRLWIND, I hope you’ll give them a try.  Very best wishes, Kat
