What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have written since I was a girl of 16. The Arizona Summers Series is inspired by a desire to write clean, funny mysteries that no one can solve until I reveal it on the last page.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted characters who were people you might meet on the street in your town. In spite of all the books we read, the hero and heroine are not always beautiful or handsome. I invented these characters so my readers can see themselves on the pages as they read. Nutmeg, the dog, of course, I made up to add more fun to the story. I doubt there is a dog anywhere as smart as Nutmeg.
I’d been happily preoccupied since I took up photography. No one noticed I changed my schedule. I covered many more hours than my job required. We stocked the restaurant kitchen once a week and so long as the guests were seated in a timely manner and fed especially good home-cooked meals, no one cared if I hung around all day or not.
The change took place in me; not my job. I went from a morning-until-night work schedule and cut it down to sixty hours a week. People said I smiled more since I didn’t spend all my time focused on the Moonstone Café and Sunday Brunch.
Let’s face it, I had all of the employees spoiled. They disliked it when I wasn’t available to change a schedule at the drop of a hat or take over a station when someone had an extremely difficult customer. I, however; was happier than I’d been in years.
“Hi stranger,” a familiar voice said. “Where have you been?”
I looked up into the deep brown eyes of the Chief of Police, and also my boyfriend, Keith Wesley. I shook my head. I could have sworn when I looked into his eyes, they twinkled like the eyes of the prince in those romantic chic-flic movies.
A few gray hairs invaded his sideburns, otherwise his hair could only be described as blue-black. In the sunlight it shined so black it had a blue tint. He wore navy blue twill uniform pants and a starched white shirt with the Moonstone Lake Police logo on it. Around his waist he had a utility belt, gun, radio, extra ammo, and handcuffs.
