So many book ideas, so little time...
published on 9/7/2018

People always ask me where I get my ideas.  Here's the truth. From the time I was a little girl, I thought everyone changed the end to books, movies and television shows they didn't like. I would even change the back stories of characters if something didn't suit my sensibilities. It wasn't until I was much older that I realized not everyone does that.

The more I think of stories, the more story ideas come to me.  A lot of time my stories start with "what if" questions.  For example, what if a woman who has a hidden past falls in love with a man with political ambitions? Then, her past comes home to roost. This became the book  ONE STEP AWAY.  Or, what if a woman decided to be a surrogate to help out her friends and, when the ultrasound shows anomalies, the couple backs out? This is the premise for ONE FINE DAY.

The hardest part for me is deciding what story to write next. I'm currently back in Good Hope...and loving the town and the characters there.
