My inspiration for writing murder and mayhem is real life. I’m an avid reader and love a good mystery. But my writing comes from real life scenarios. I’m a huge fan of the books of Ann Rule, the Queen of True Crime. Growing up, I was fascinated with my grandmother’s Reader Digest. I expanded my interest to present day true crimes, especially of writers such as Ann Rule, the Queen of True Crime.
I hold a fascination with the psychology of a murderer. To write a convincing murder/mystery, you need to understand the motivation of the killer. Ann Rule has tackled some of the most horrific crime stories including Ted Bundy and Diana Downs. But what she has done is given insight into their lives which helps when someone like myself dives into creating a fictional story.
I write romantic suspense. I have tried to write a sweet romance, but the story always turns with the heroine finding herself in mortal danger. Real life has inspired many of my stories. Irene Sandler inspired Broken Legacy. Although Broken Legacy is set during the French Revolution and Irene Sandler lived during WWII, she was a shining example of bravery in the face of untold odds. Irene Sandler saved hundreds of children by working with the Polish underground against the Nazi. Her life showed me the courage of a woman and the extremes they will go to when saving innocents.
To me, a mystery is a puzzle needing for the puzzle pieces to fit together to show the whole picture. When I write, I want the reader to feel as if they are there. I want to make it feel real…
