Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
Deke Reynolds was a secondary character from Close To The Edge. He'd been injured in a fire and had scars on his neck and jaw, along with slightly damaged vocal chords. There was a story there. When I started writing Close To The Fire, I knew he would be the hero. What surprised me was the woman he'd left behind a decade earlier when he was injured. Elizabeth "LIbby" Wilson is the county social worker we met in Close To Home. So this is a lovers reunited story.
