I'm just finishing up my fourth novel now. Though it doesn't have a title yet, it will be released in the summer of 2017. It's another thriller about a young father who is killed in a car crash with his 4-year-old daughter in the backseat, completely unharmed. The crash is ruled an accident until the coming days when the little girl starts having nightmares about another car following her father and her and pushing them from the road. Was he purposefully killed? The man's widow launches an investigation to find her husband's killer.

I'm an early bird, so I love getting up around 5am to write, when the house is quiet and my husband and children are still asleep. I don't have much in the way of routines, as I tend to write when I feel moved to write and don't force myself to meet a certain word count each day, or to write for a set amount of time. I find that I'm easily distracted, so write when the rest of the family is either asleep or at work/school - and though I wish I was, I'm not one of those authors who can work at the local coffee shop. I tend to hide away at home to write, usually at my kitchen table with a cat or 2 (or 4) keeping me company. I don't outline my novels in advance, but start with a problem and then dive right in - creating the characters, and figuring out logical steps to solve the problem, while throwing in some twists and turns along the way. Thanks so much for the great question. Hope you enjoy Don't You Cry!(less)
