Spies and Prejudice Launch
Today is the official birthday of my second novel Spies and Prejudice!!!
I am so excited for Berry and Tanner (and Mary Chris, Jason, Ryan, Drew and Collin) to be out in the world! This is a book that has been four years in the making, from an idea that seized hold of me in June 2009 to an actual book today.
Within days of coming up with the idea for a book that started with asking myself the question "what if something actually happened during the summer I worked for my dad's private investigation firm?", I had thirty pages and my own Saint Bernard puppy as "research" for Berry's dog Lulu.
I will never forget that day, the day that Spies and Prejudice went from being a fun distraction to a real, live book. In some ways, Spies was the hardest book I ever wrote, requiring me to dig deep and find the story. But it was also the most fun. The characters were a blast to play with, full of sass and wit. I've loved every minute I've spent with them, and I hope others will too!
