My ideas come from literally everywhere, but most times from something I've read that is true that gets me thinking "what if". The idea for GATED came from a documentary about underground doomsday shelters and the idea for the book I'm working on now came from a news article about a family of bank robbers. Usually my mind sort of catches on something interesting and then starts building from there.(less)

I will turn 47 on October 3rd and then, on the 14th, my husband and I will celebrate 24 years of marriage!
