This may sounds silly, but the hardest part was "staying with the darker elements of Copper's story." I'm a happy person and try to live a drama-free life, while Copper's life was rife with drama, at every turn.

It was painful to think about, research and write. To know I had to enter that world day after day. I often wanted to throw Pennies away and write a fun rom-com. However, I believe a writer's #1 responsibility is to tell the truth, so I sat with the discomfort and told her truth to the best of my ability.

I hope that makes sense. Great question! (less)

Hi MJ,

Thanks so much for reading Pennies. I REALLY appreciate it. I'm still sort of shocked how much people are loving my story, but so grateful...Copper Daniels is very special to me.

You're asking the million dollar question about book #2. I'm hard at work finding the new mystery, but it's not coming easily. I want to say it'll be the end of 2016, but more than likely it'll be 2017. I wish it was faster, but I want to make sure it's another great read for you, and not just throw something out there.

You're welcome to stay in touch with me through my blog: (http://marcymckay.com/) or Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/Marcy-McKay-...)

Thanks! Marcy(less)
