From the Author
At first I didn't have the idea. I published Hurricane Crimes and thought that was it. Then a couple readers expressed wanting tok now what happened before and after Hurricane Crimes. I pondered a sequel and realized that the story wasn't over...a killer was still at large. As soon as I thought of the second book, the idea of a series bloomed, and I knew they would all feature a different disaster and contain what I love about romantic-suspense stories: crime and romance.
2. How does your work differ from others of its genre?
There are countless romantic-suspense stories, and several take place during a storm, but not many authors have used natural disasters as a continuing theme. Not only that, but on top of the disasters there are also crimes of nearly every kind, which is why my collection is known as the Disaster Crimes Series.
3. The earthquake scene was so realistic. Have you ever experienced an earthquake firsthand?
I have never experienced an earthquake. The closest I got to this was the Disaster! ride at Universal Studios. While you're sitting in a subway train, there's an earthquake and a water main breaks, sending a wave of water toward you. I remember sitting on the side where the water comes and thinking it was going to go over my head.
4. What did you enjoy most about writing this book?
I am fascinated by disasters, so I enjoyed learning all about earthquakes: the science behind them, real firsthand accounts, and the aftermath to cities. I created pages and pages of notes.
