Alasdair has always had stories on the brain. From the time he was old enough to do so, he was making them up, writing them down, sharing them with friends and family, and from the time he was old enough to have ambition, it was to be a celebrated literary novelist.
That never happened. For years, Alasdair toiled, getting rejection after rejection from publishing house after publishing house - until in a fury and on a whim, he took the throwaway comment of a slush reader at face value and penned something genre. The Deck was full of drama and mystery, so it was natural to parlay one of the unspoken ones into a book. Names were changed, of course. Lindsey Clarke, King of Diamonds, became Lindley Claren, eccentric adventurer, and Alasdair spun a tale of how the missing man wasn’t out traveling, as all his associates claimed, but long-since murdered. The whole thing was was uncovered and solved by an old acquaintance of Lindley, another eccentric named Dabney Rush, and after finishing and editing the thing, Alasdair sent it off, expecting nothing.
He got a contract instead, and since he still dreamed of fame and honor, literary books written under his own name, he picked Jamie MacDougall - a combination of his middle name and his father’s first - as a pen name for his mysteries and kept submitting his literary fiction under Alasdair DeWitt. He became one of those unbelievably prolific writers, turning out a book every eight months like clockwork, and in a way starting on the genre path just opened the floodgates. A year after Jamie MacDougall debuted, Kathleen Masters - another pen name - began publishing through the Xius’ Deck publishing house. This time the main character was Stacy Wheelock, a bright-eyed girl detective and Three of Clubs who solved less serious mysteries in the familiar environs of the Deck, and again Alasdair had a hit on his hands - and less time for his literary work.
