Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
The idea for The Flower Eater came to me in pieces, over many years. The title actually came to me first, and stayed with me until I finally began to write the story about six years later. Currently, I'm writing the sequel to The Flower Eater. I'd never planned to write a sequel and used to dislike sequels, so its ironic to me that I'm now writing one! But The Flower Eater does stand alone and have an ending that completes the story -- however, so many questions are raised in this story, that it felt like a sequel was swirling around in my mind when I finished. So, I'm working on a sequel to address those questions -- and because I like the characters so much I want to "flesh them out" further.
