David likes to tell readers that our system is foolproof. Diane starts at the beginning, while David starts at the end. He writes backwards and when we reach the middle, we are finished! Truthfully, we each write scenes and then have the freedom to edit each other’s work. Diane edits the manuscript one last time before it goes to the publisher’s editor. It is a joy for us as husband and wife to research, outline, and then start a suspenseful story that can inspire people.
