Goodreads asked Carrie-Anne O'Driscoll:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Carrie-Anne O'Driscoll Last Kiss- The Life and Death of Ka'Tara Gallagher is a true story about the murder of my 20 month old niece in 1999. The murder haunted me for many years. I became a peace officer in 2012 and decided that I wanted the truth. Spokane Police Department supplied her actual case file. I went though it as a police officer and the book wrote itself. I believe that as painful as her story is, it's necessary to tell it to prevent other children from dying needlessly.
