What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've been reading and writing nearly my whole life, but in fact "Wrong Place, Right Time" is my first published book.
As it's a romance, it was inspired in part by my own relationship with my husband. I really enjoyed writing it because any love relationship, real or imagined, is a fascinating character study.
This story is set in the fictional, "alternative history" nation of Sevia, a small country in Southeastern Europe. It's a place marked by ethnic conflict and violence, but, as you will see when you read "Wrong Place, Right Time," a great love story can happen anywhere!
