Current Release: THE DARK HOUR
Describe your current release in two sentences?
A high-profile killing has brought FBI Special Agent and forensic artist Sydney Fitzpatrick to Amsterdam-even as the assassination of a prominent U.S. senator rocks the political world. Two seemingly unrelated murders are leading Sydney to the threshold of a shocking conspiracy to spread a plague of death across the globe, especially when her sketch of a killer-and possible conspirator-reveals the face of a female CIA agent believed to be dead
What have you had to give up to pursue your writing career?
T.V. and cleaning my house. Mostly cleaning my house.
What are you working on?
Book 5 in the series (untitled at the moment). Although each of the books in the series can be read as a stand alone, there is an unanswered question at the end of FACE OF A KILLER, about some numbers in a bank pouch that Sydney finds and what they might belong to. I answer that question in the book I'm currently writing.
Do you have a comfort food? What is it?
Tortilla soup. Homemade. (Although any homemade soup will do in a pinch!) To me, there is nothing more wonderful than eating a bowl of soup, especially on a rainy winter's day!
If you could time travel, where would you travel to and why?
So many possibilities!!! As it stands, this question ties into the research I'm doing on my current work in progress, so I'd like to go back a couple decades and find out if journalists Danny Casolaro and Gary Webb really did kill themselves--or were both deaths actually hits on the newspapermen, who were investigating cases involving government conspiracy. (And since conspiracy theory tends to run through most of my current series, I'm leaning toward both deaths being hits.)
