Hi Allison,

My next novel will come out April 1, 2017--a good choice for the release as the book centers on the way a man fools his wife, his children and all his clients for a long time--and then devastates them when the truth comes out. The tentative title (fingers crossed ) is The Widow of Wall Street. I also expect to publish a novella sometime this year! I'll announce it here!

My inspiration comes from a 'what if' dive bombing into my brain like a stealth missile. Once the idea sets in, if I can't shake it off, I follow it to the end. I become extraordinarily involved once I'm in the world. Thanks for your kind words!(less)

This helps remind me of my goals. 2) Give in as though it were the flu, but put a limit on how long I can indulge in it. (less)
