In a standalone, you create characters, give them attributes and emotional baggage, always secure in the knowledge that at the end of the book you can start all over again. With a series, whatever you wrote in the past has to be carried over into the next instalment; a bit like life, I suppose.

I was continually referring back to A Dark Redemption to see whether a certain character had green eyes or blue, and to make sure that continuity was preserved. The trick is to get a balance between solid characterisation and not binding your characters too tightly to a history or timeline you then have to wiggle out of in subsequent books. Once that was out of the way, the other challenges began to manifest themselves.
You write a detective novel and there are certain scenes that will repeatedly crop up in the narrative — the discovery of the body, the discussion with the coroner, the briefings and investigative avenues. It made me acutely aware when writing these scenes that I would have to make them significantly different from the previous book.
So, A Dark Redemption opens with the body of a young girl found raped and tortured. I knew that Eleven Days Before Christmas would have to start differently and that was why I chose to begin with a burning convent and ten dead nuns.

Paradoxically, the fact that you are writing about the same characters in the same setting forces you to not write the same book over and over again. Another welcome liberty in a series is that you do not need to wrap up subplots within the scope of one book but can let them fester and simmer over the course of several volumes.
