What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This book was inspired by the song Hymn for the Missing by Red. I happened to hear it one day on Pandora and couldn’t get it out of my mind afterwards. Before I knew it I had the plot pretty much from beginning to end and got to work.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters just kind of evolved, I guess. Their names are taken from people I know or have admired over the years but their personalities came about on their own.
My eyes went wide and my body tensed; I felt unable to do anything but watch as he drew a tiny, intricate knife from his pocket and seized my hand. He ran the razor-fine blade across my palm making an inch long incision in the middle of it. The blood began to pool and he brought my hand to his lips then delicately, intimately licked it away. He put the knife back in his pocket and exchanged it for a small vial that he uncapped. As he tilted it over my palm a drop or two dribbled into the wound he had created and he smoothed it over the open cut with the tip of his finger. My palm turned to ice then to fire and while it glistened in the dim light my mouth fell open as the slit seemed to fold back in on itself and healed into a perfectly flawless layer of skin.
