What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This is Book Two in my series, the Adelaide Henson Series. I wrote the series when the story landed in my lap. It came from family and I surrounded the mental illness concept with a crime and a love story. The series has several underlying stories, supporting the primary, fictional telling.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
One person I know serves as elemental to the story, while other characters have been developed as mirror images of my wife, my children and myself – although embellished somewhat (a lot)
Addie’s headed to Little Havana. It’s just west of downtown Miami and has a lot of bars and nightspots that Fuendes frequents. She’s not a celebrity figure and likes to keep a low profile, but she’s attractive and likes to have a good time, too. You can’t have it both ways. Addie’s first stop is Bar Nancy. She exits her rental, stuffs her gun behind her back, and makes for the front door. It’s lunchtime, and the restaurant and bar are packed. Showing the bartender her badge, he gives her his full attention, and she shows him the picture of Daisy Fuendes.
“Have you seen Daisy?” she asks, almost barking the question. She’s not here to be polite. Some of the people in the bar are the rough kind, and they don’t get white glove service from Addie. What they do get is her unnerving glare as she sweeps the crowd, holding the photo up to the man’s face.
When her eyes return to the bartender, he simply replies, “Never seen her.”
Addie grips the man’s hand with her left and twists his thumb backward, which is a) painful and b) hard to get out of. Opposable thumbs have their advantages and disadvantages.
“Look again,” Addie says, and then she smiles that fake, sweet smile that says “please.”
Wincing, he eagerly tells her, “Oh, yeah! Yeah! That’s Daisy! She’s not here!”
She releases his hand, “If she comes in, have her call me,” she tells him, throwing her card on the counter. She walks out, gets into her rental, and hits up the next place, Garcia Cony, where she does the same routine. And then, two more.
She knows she won’t find Daisy in the bars she goes to. She also knows she won’t have to find Daisy at all.
Daisy Fuendes will find HER.
