Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
It actually started as a short story called 'Travel Light'. It was based on a yahoo story that came out early in 2013 about psychiatric patients and the suitcases they left behind at the hospitals upon discharge. I was curious what those things might be and what they might tell me about the kind of person those patients were beyond the walls. It also made me think about what secrets might be in those cases.
