FICTION - If there is a setting, tell us how you decided on that setting and what you did to create a complete and vivid setting for your readers?
FICTION - What inspires you about the hero or heroine in your book?
What makes them memorable for the reader? I hope the female readers will find things to identify with--such as the fact Tempe is also a mother and a wife and must balance all facets of her life. She's strong but also a very real person who has to deal with the day-to-day problems of life.
What motivates the hero and/or heroine?
FICTION - Is there a villain or something that causes friction in your story? Because I write mysteries there are always villains. In Judgment Fire there are an assortment of odd characters who are villainous. The husband who batters his wife--and the son who acts like he doesn't care about his mother are two.
