What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I have written for as long as I can remember. It is a place where I go to find answers to questions I didn't even know I had. I started this project over ten years ago. It was my mid-life crisis, so to speak.
At my daughter's urging, I took it out of hiding last year and began revamping, re-editing, and honing it. When insecurities hit, I sent the manuscript to several women who begged me to publish it, citing it is a story that needs to be told. The sequel, Daddy's Girl, is currently in the works.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
There are many human experiences the general population keeps buried under a shroud of secrecy, but those are the very topics that need exploration; they need a voice.
Looking at Julie, you would think she has it all. Beauty, a big house, and a successful husband, but everything is not as it seems. Julie's lifelong search for love and acceptance has led her on a journey of self-destruction. What started as a little girl's dream to live behind a picket fence has become the beginning of her undoing.
"She steps out of her car; her long, lean legs precede her. Her dark hair is perfectly coiffed, and her designer sunglasses hide her bloodshot eyes. She waves at her neighbors while unstrapping her children from the backseat. Leading them by the hands, she whispers to herself, God, I hate them. "
