Tag, I'm It - - The Next Big thing

What is your working title of your book? Nowhere to Run - the sequel to Dead Running

Where did the idea come from for the book? Cassidy spent most of Dead Running running so I wondered how she'd deal with not running.

What genre does your book fall under?
Clean romantic suspense.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
I'm so old I'd choose Russell Crowe and Julia Roberts even though they're both over twenty years older than my hero and heroine!

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? 
Captured by the slavers who murdered her mother, Cassidy wants to run but when someone she loves is taken can she selfishly survive?
(Sorry, it's rough, I'm horrible at spitting out something like that.)

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self-published-yay! Love being in control.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? May we see an intro?
About three weeks. (It's only 19K words).

Intro:

A gunshot echoed through my peaceful neighborhood. Not again. Two weeks without someone trying to kill me was apparently too long.

I dropped to my hands and knees before realizing the light was still on. My trembling hand slid up the smooth wall to the switch, my tanned arm contrasting with the white paint. If the shooter looked up at the window right now he could make me an amputee before hunting me down and killing me. My fingers closed around the switch and my room was plunged into blissful dark.

I crawled towards the window. It was October, but the day had been so warm I still had my window open to cool off my second-story room. My ears strained for bullets or someone creeping towards the house, but the chilly night air revealed nothing. I peered down into the darkness, our feeble porch light losing the battle against the night.

The shooter didn’t make me wait long for his dramatic appearance. He lumbered towards the front door, steadying himself against the railing. His shadow cast from the porch light was mammoth.

Yikes! There was a giant on my front porch who had either just been shot or just shot someone else. My fingers dampened the windowsill with sweat. Nana was downstairs snoring without a worry, could I get to her in time?
  

Who or what inspired you to write this book?
Cassidy. She's in my head a lot but she's hilarious so we have a good time.

What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
The book is a light-hearted suspense but it deals with the horrific issue of child trafficking. I'm hoping others will learn about and help fight against this growing evil.
