Welcome, Patricia. How do people react when they find out you write?
I don’t get a lot of reaction until people discover what I write. Then they look sideways at me and say, “You don’t look like someone who writes about murder.” And I tell them, “But I kill them nicely.”
Do you type or write by hand? Computer? Typewriter? Legal pad?
I write almost exclusively on the computer. Started out on a portable Royal typewriter, and if I hadn't gotten a computer, I doubt I would have ever written a novel. :) No way could I ever get a clean copy!
What was the main inspiration for the new book? Had the idea been on your mind for a while or just popped into it one day?
I’m writing a series of novels on cold cases set in Memphis, and the Pink Palace, which is a museum, was such an intriguing place when I grew up that I knew I wanted to set a story there. I contacted them and they gave me an amazing tour of the museum from the attic to the basement, looking for places to hide a body.
Vacation: Beach or Mountains? - I like them both! But if push comes to shove, the beach
Y’all or You Guys? - Definitely Y’all
Biscuits or Dinner Roll? - Dinner roll—homemade
Spring, summer, winter, or fall? - It used to be fall, but after some of our winters, Spring has sprung ahead.
Laptop or Desktop? - A Macbook Pro Laptop
Mug or teacup? - MUG. I break teacups.
Please tell us a little about your novel, Justice Buried.
In an effort to get her security consulting business off
the ground, Kelsey Allen has been spending a lot of time up in the air, rappelling down buildings and climbing through windows to show business owners their vulnerabilities to thieves. When she is hired to pose as a conservator at the Pink Palace Museum in order to test their security weaknesses after some artifacts go missing, she's ecstatic. But when her investigative focus turns from theft to murder, Kelsey knows she's out of her league--and possibly in the cross hairs. When blast-from-the-past Detective Brad Hollister is called in to investigate, Kelsey may find that he's the biggest security threat yet . . . to her heart.
