We were in New Mexico and there was a beautiful little stream with such a rocky bed that the water just seemed to stutter along in fits and starts. I used it for the basis of my book and also mention it in other stories.(less)

I grew up reading Edgar Allan Poe and Alfred Hitchcock. I loved their collections of short stories. Then I moved on to Stephen King, Dean Koontz, and Mary Higgins Clark. Oh, and Jeffrey Deaver. His Lincoln Rhyme novels are packed with suspense.

Thanks for asking. I still have so much to learn about this game of novel writing!(less)
