What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I always wanted to write a novel. I was suffering my reoccurring nightmares and instead of wasting those “memories” I put them on paper. My writing started out as mostly therapeutic but once all the characters showed up the story took over. I got with my editor, Allison Itterley, and with her help the story came to life.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The characters came to life through the dialogue. I knew that they needed to be in the story and let them guide me. This is not an easy question to answer. They came from the story and I just tried to let it happen. A couple characters were deleted in the final edit and combined…it was cleaner that way.
