But don't worry. I won't bore you with the same old answers that you've already read. Shannon McNear requested I cough up some info on my new Bow Street Runners trilogy, so put on your seat belt. Here we go!

Answer the ten questions below.
Link to several more people.
What is the title of your next book?
Where did the idea come from for the book?
While doing research for A HEART DECEIVED (a finished manuscript my agent is currently shopping around) I came across some intriguing information about a fledgling police force in London called the Bow Street Runners.
What genre does your book fall under?
What actors would you choose to play the part in a movie rendition?
|Gerard Butler as NICHOLAS BRENTWOOD|
|Rosamund Pike as EMILY PAYNE|
EMILY PAYNE is more treacherous than a city full of miscreants and thugs, for she's a thief of the highest order...she's stolen Officer NICHOLAS BRENTWOOD's heart.
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I am represented by WordServe Literary.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of the manuscript?
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
There's a fantastic non-Christian Bow Street Runners series by James McGee. It's not really geared for female readers, though. Blood. Guts. Sex. Violence. Yada, yada.
In the Christian market, I suppose the closest Regency that is suspenseful would be Julie Klassen's The Tutor's Daughter.
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
A quirky combination of Sherlock Holmes and Burn Notice that collided in my head. Quite messy, but very interesting, enough so that it jumpstarted me to begin this series.
What else about the book might pique the reader's interest?
How would you feel if you came home from a fun day of shopping and met the man who was to be your shadow 24/7? Translation: fun's over!
Fun Fact: did you know that the English were a bit squeamish about having a police force? They felt it would impinge upon their rights and were not at all for it at first.
There you have it. I'm currently working on the second book in the trilogy: MOORE'S MAIDEN.
Now then, on to the tagging of the next authors. Be sure to visit their blogs to find out about more great fiction that will be headed your way!
