Castle - US TV Series

Castle – US TV Series

Richard Castle (aka Rick Castle) is a famous (fictional) crime thriller writer. He have created a fictional character Derrick Storm who is the protagonist in his books.

The character of Storm and his adventures are loved by the readers so much. Richard was getting a handsome amount of money for writing more and more Derrick Storm adventures. In fact the publisher is his divorced second wife, who like the multi million dollar business generated through Castle’s books.

By the way, here are some Derrick Storm EBook Shorts we have reviewed:

Castle lives with his mother (who is quite romantic and happy go lucky and a little immature for her age) and daughter (who is quite mature and sometimes takes care of Castle like his mother).

So life is all set for him right?

Well, when you see there is no problem, a problem is awaiting to introduce itself!

Richard Castle got bored with his work and he found that there is no novely coming in his work these days. In fact the things in Strom adventures are almost predictable for him it is giving him no thrills to explore the series anymore. So in his last book, he gets Storm killed!

The things didn’t go well with his publisher mainly. She is very keen that Richard should keep writing more and more Storm adventures. Richard’s mother have started (possibly) rumors that he is passing through “writer’s block”. At the heart (as he confesses to his daughter) he needs some inspiration so the things get interesting in terms of his work.
