What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to write a mystery about an amateur woman sleuth with a dog that's smart enough to help her with clues. Then came the idea that the antagonist leaves her black roses with threatening messages and how the messages change the course of Cassidy's life.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My protagonist, Cassidy, needed to be clueless but resilient. Her close friends needed different personalities – a sweet one, a bossy one, and one that can't say anything nice. But why they are close friends has a hidden agenda. There's a cast of characters that aren't who they appear to be.
If someone knew what car I drove, they probably knew where I lived. For the first time in my life, I didn’t want to go home. Why couldn’t I remember if I’d turned on the alarm system in my haste to leave the house this morning?
My imagination took over, and I pictured a Jason-Bourne type sitting on my sofa, dressed in black, waiting for me to walk through the front door. Even if I had turned on the alarm, Jason Bourne could enter without breaking a sweat, or even a window.
Another reason not to go home was that Fred the Courier couldn’t deliver another cryptic note. In three hours, I had turned my life into a Hallmark mystery episode. Perhaps I needed to stop watching crime dramas on television.
