I believe I have read five of your books now and Shocking Pink has been by far my favourite. I loved the hints throughout the book as to the identity of Mr X and was shocked when I found out the true identity of the killer. Where do you get the inspiration to write such works?

Hi Helen! Believe it or not, the inspiration for SHOCKING PINK came from a very innocent childhood memory. My friends and I were playing in our neighborhood and went around back of a house we thought was empty. As I ran past, I glanced at the sliding glass doors and saw the young couple who lived there on the floor, passionately making out. Most of my ideas come from things that have happened to me--an encounter in a coffeehouse, a fan letter from a child, a fortune in a cookie--only with a frightening twist. Thanks for your question!
