1. What inspired you to select the genre, Mystery/Suspense/Romance?

I’ve always loved to read a good mystery or love story. As a reader, I would try to figure out the ending of the stories. So as a writer, it becomes a whole different ball game. The focus changes and becomes, “What key points will grab and hold my reader’s interest?” The story develops and builds into a major plot with many sub-plots once an idea for a book takes hold. Then I find myself in true writer mode and put my family on hold for a little bit until I write things down. The characters weave in and out of the drama, sometimes circling back and forth. Then there is evil which enters the game. The humor is a sidestep to bring the reader back to normalcy. That is why I like the genre.

2. Where do you find your ideas?

That is a hard thing to answer for each book in my Wright series is similar because Derek and Jess appear, but other new characters enter into the foray making the books very different. There is a definite something called, Imagination Overload happening on the idea route.

3. How do you work the plot?

Most of the time, I wake up in the morning, grab my Gatorade and coffee, and roll with whatever chapters popped into my brain at four o’clock in the morning. Book 5 was a little more complicated, so I actually did a flowchart to keep track of the characters and the plot. When I’m writing, I don’t worry about the English language too much until later. I do rewrite when the flow doesn’t work or I’ve hit a hard stop with a scene.

4. Describe your best main character’s personalities.

Intelligence has always been a turn on for me. I really like strong people who are devoted to things important. The characters also have quirks in their personality and are not perfect, but really close. They work hard and are not afraid, but do take steps to protect themselves. Fun is always on the horizon. Spectacular events happen in my books and the characters are more than that adding elements of surprise, excitement, and passion to my stories. My characters do live.

5. How many books will be in the series?

For now, at least five:

  1. Diamonds Blondes And Poison
  2. Dead On Coordinates
  3. Wild Golden Obsession
  4. No Easy Target
  5. Powerhouse Race

It is an interesting ride. I hope you love the journey and want to join along. However, a writer never stops. There will be a Book 6. The book is about Snake Woman and Derek Wright in their last battle. It will be the last in this series and stunning.  We hope that you will join us on this last adventure:

  • Cross Paths
