What's the story behind your latest book?
It's really about going home after a long time away, and finding that home is not how you left it. It's also a mixture of finding love that you weren't looking for amidst a search for a killer.
When did you first start writing?
Just recently! Small Town Secrets is my first full writing attempt. I had always believed I couldn't handle the dialogue part of writing, which put me off. Having said that, I've been a journaller since I could write.
