Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?
My most recent book was inspired by its predecessor in The Mountain Man Mysteries series, so in fairness I should divulge how I got the idea for THAT book. Which was...
I was driving one day and daydreaming about what unexpected surprise I might discover along the way - a wild critter, say, or at least a stray dog. That got me to wondering: how could an innocuous event like that change someone's life? What if, say, a guy who feared dogs picked up an injured stray one - and had to bring it to his ex's vet clinic to get it treated? And what if she was spoiling for a rekindled romance with the guy?
Then it became a matter of just how messed up and dangerous a person's life could become, just because one day they did something nice for a change. If you roll in small-town corrupt politics (like I've seen in a number of places I've lived), you find rich ground for fun story-telling...and an unlikely hero.
