Do you have a writing routine and/or area that helps you develop your stories and get inspiration for your next book?
I have a loft area that I write in and unlike a lot of writers I know, I need absolute silence to write. I wish I could play music but it interferes with the characters dialogue in my head! So that's how I develop and write the stories. The inspiration, that is tougher. Secrets began because I wanted a female lead who was strong throughout the story and who didn't get captured by the bad guy in the climactic ending. The idea for The Devil's Game started when I saw a couple in a coffee shop and it looked like the man was really attracted to the woman but the woman just wanted to be friends. So I started thinking, what if there were this couple, but instead of him stalking her, someone else was stalking them? And Maren Kaye and I worked from there.
