What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This was such a fun book to write! It was inspired by sitting around with magician friends in Las Vegas and listening to them tell backstage stories and gossip about other magicians. I was fascinated with their world of magic, their showbiz ambitions, the tricks of their trade, and their challenges and successes. I also knew a Metro police detective and thought she'd be a perfect model for my detective heroine, Cheri Raymer.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Almost every character in Magicide is based on someone I have met or known during the years I lived in Las Vegas. For me, that's the best way to craft my characters. It's easier if I have a particular model in mind. And living in Las Vegas, there's no shortage of quirky characters with interesting stories.
