The Next Big Thing

What is the working title of your book?
Island Surprise

Where did the idea come from for the book?
I'm a member of Tuesday Tales, a blog of writers that writes to a picture prompt each week. It started by coming up with a scene writing to a picture prompt. The picture was of a small row boat beached on an island.

What genre does your book fall under?
It's romantic suspense, which is new for me.

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
For my heroine Claire I would choose Zoe Saldana, and for the hero, bestselling author, Sam Stewart, Patrick Dempsey

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Authors attending a writing conference in Hawaii stumble upon a murder and match wits against the murder.

Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
I hope to have it published by a publisher.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm not finished yet.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I was inspired by the picture, than built a character to be in the row boat, rowing to an island where she thinks she saw a murder.

What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
The heroine is a romance author and her hero is a thriller bestselling author, she teamed up with as a writing partner. He helps her and her friend determine what happened, helps keep them safe, and of course wants a closer relationship with friend and his writing partner. In the middle of this they're attending a writer's conference, as the back drop to the story. Readers get to see what goes on at a writer's conference.
