Over the years, readers have asked me where I get my inspiration from. Usually, I've told them life in general, that I can look at things around me and get an idea. With my upcoming suspense novel, Last Showing, the idea came to me when I was looking to buy a house back in 2012.
I had a wonderful real estate agent, and she and I talked about my writing and what type of books we liked. As she showed me houses, I asked her if she'd ever had any scary showings with potential buyers. Were there any creeps she had to deal with? Fortunately, she said no, but my brain started spinning. I got the idea for a real estate agent who shows a house to a serial killer. I told Jennifer (my agent) about my idea, and she wanted to be in the book!
I started writing this book in 2013, but I put it aside when the muse wasn't cooperating. It's never taken me this long to write a book, but I wanted to make sure this one was done right. I wrote it, finished it, then decided I didn't like the story line so I rewrote it this year. Well, most of it anyway. I hope I did it justice, and I hope you (and Jennifer) like Last Showing. It releases on November 30th!
My thoughts, experiences, challenges, and goals. Right here. At least once a week or so. Oh, and opinions, too. Those will definitely come in. Join me!
