Here are a couple of things not to do when writing your villain’s point of view. Don’t have him or her talk too much and take over the novel. If you use a tried-and-true (such as the serial killer, the drug dealer, the stalker, or the psychotic ex-husband) make him a family man. A good villain is led by dark motivations. Revenge is a possible motive for villains, but only if the villain is going to all that trouble because he was wronged in a big way. Greed, anger, jealousy, and the lust for power make great motivations, but make it personal. In Unholy Alliance Seamus McGinn framed heroine Tori Morningstar for murder. Now she’s out, and he’s concerned she’ll find him.
Wishing you success as you write your Romantic Suspense!
