FAQ Category: About the Author

Do you listen to music while you write?

Typically I begin the day with a jog or a walk, and I listen to a playlist that reminds me of the book I’m working on. I like to pick songs with lyrics that evoke something about my story—maybe the setting or maybe the characters.

Where do you get your story ideas?

I started out as a reporter and so I’m a bit of a news junkie. Sometimes a headline will set me off on the path of “what if?” and soon I’ve got a story or a character in mind.
