master mentalism tricks

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Murder of Sarah Grosvenor?

I learned about Sarah’s death when working on my family genealogy; she is my 2nd cousin 8 times removed.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of The Murder of Sarah Grosvenor, what would they be?

For Rebecca, perhaps “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child. “Basketcase” by Green Day for Ebenezer West. Amasa Sessions gets “I Don’t Care Anymore” by Phil Collins.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I read a wide mix of genres so it would be difficult for me to choose a favorite!

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Right now I’m reading “Cloud Cuckoo Land” by Anthony Doerr.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The scene in my book where Bethiah West takes Rebecca home was very important to me. I think it’s important to remember what we have in common, even when we have many differences.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I have to write at my desk as I need quiet and room to think. The view outside the window in front of my desk is beautiful and perfect for creative thinking.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

“When will our consciences grow so tender that we will act to prevent human misery rather than avenge it?” Eleanor Roosevelt.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I want readers to remember Sarah Grosvenor, her lack of agency, and how we can do better for women three hundred years later.
