Edie Harris On Writing About Family

I have a very small family, consisting of my parents and younger brother. Oh, and the dog. Can’t forget the dog. I have only a handful of cousins, limited aunts and uncles, and my only living grandparents are on my mother’s side of the family tree. We don’t do much in the way of reunions or get-togethers, and holidays always involve limited visiting time due to crazy schedules and whatnot.

But I cherish my small family, texting my brother, regularly calling my mom…and, you know, not allowing my dad anywhere near my books (he never needs to read Chapter 13 in Blamed, is what I’m saying). As a homebody, however, I am compelled to create family for myself, wherever I go. Now that I live in Chicago, I’m far away from my blood, so I’ve grabbed onto the new friends here in this exciting city and made them my people. My network of loved ones grows stronger every day.

Perhaps it’s because of my small family, but I love writing about the dynamics of larger sibling groups–such as the Faradays in my Blood Money series–and then the networks of loved ones (much like mine) they build for themselves as time passes. I wouldn’t change my own situation for anything in the world, but when my imagination takes hold, it runs away with dreams of sprawling family units.

The deeper I get into Blood Money, the closer I grow to my fictional family. Beth and Vick, Tobias and Chandler, and Casey, Gillian, and Adam, who will soon find new family of their own and bring those individuals into the Faraday fold. I encourage you to add my Faradays to your own family; they would love to be loved by you.

About Ripped: A Blood Money Novel

23208552Attorney and political heavyweight Tobias Faraday is the Ice King, a man alone in the eye of a deadly storm. And in the wake of his sister’s torture, he’s out for blood.

The key to Tobias’s revenge is the disavowed British spy he’s kept imprisoned for weeks. Chandler McCallister can get him behind enemy lines in Russia, but the clever double-agent has a demand of her own before she puts her life on the line in the name of redemption.

Posing as Chandler’s boyfriend at an aristocratic wedding in the English countryside won’t kill Tobias. Not in theory.

As the threat of Moscow looms larger and the enemy reveals himself to be crueler than any human can imagine, Tobias reluctantly partners with his prisoner to derail the immediate threat—to their families, to Faraday Industries, and to their lives. What he finds in the process is a feverish, relentless need already melting the ice from his veins.
