Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
As of this moment, my most recent book is Ultimate Concealer, a Toni Diamond Mystery. Toni's an independent beauty consultant with a teenaged daughter who is pretty much constantly embarrassed by her mother. Toni's ex-husband left her and their baby by sneaking out of the house one night. He's never been seen or heard of since. I was thinking about bringing him into a book and I thought, where would a good-looking, Texan country singer, with the morals of an alley cat and not a whole lot of talent end up? Turned out he was in Vegas in a lounge act for a second-rate casino. Sending my big-haired, big-nosed, diamond-loving sleuth to Vegas after her ex lures their daughter there and then gets charged with murder, was ridiculously fun.
