What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Making connections! I'm obsessed with connecting the dots, which is why Historical Fiction and Mysteries are my favorite genres. Foliage is based on an amazing true event and it's fun to retell the story in an exciting thriller with a great leading character.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
In order to keep any story interesting and moving forward, it needs a fascinating protagonist. For me that meant a smart, sexy female character who is adept at finance, but who also enjoys adventure and living life, and with a great name, Louise Moscow.
He prayed silently as he approached the front door of the family home he no longer owned. As he opened it, feeling the unlatched door give way, he knew he had arrived too late. The sound of his wife weeping echoed in the other end of the house, and a single gunshot rang out. He ran to the back parlor, but a man in the doorway blocked his entry. His wife lay on the temple bed, naked, bruised; a single line of blood mixed with snot dripped from her nose. The worst had happened. She stared blankly at the smoke rising from the gun barrel pointed down at her dead brother-in-law.
The man stood motionless, gripping the briefcase full of cash, an utter failure. The gun now pointed in his direction as the killer-rapist walked toward him. The accomplice continued to restrain him with a raised finger. Young, barely twenty-five years old but wise in the ways of rape and murder, he tucked the gun into his jacket and slipped the briefcase from the man’s grip. He opened the case and eyeballed the amount of cash. He removed one bundle and handed it to his victim.
“Spend what you have left wisely, and don’t do anything else foolish.” The killer nodded to his cohort that they were leaving.
“You are from a good Pakistani family, a fellow Mohajir. There is nothing noble in what you are doing,” the man whimpered.
“And yet you are still alive.” The two thugs walked out and continued casually down the road, confident no one would pursue them.
