To continue on with The Next Best Thing Challenge, today I'm answering the following question about my work-in-progress On Best Behavior:
Where did the idea come from for the book?
On Best Behavior is the third and final novel of my romantic suspense The Conduct Series, so most of the book follows the natural progression of my hero and heroine Grant and Sophie.
But I often find inspiration in movies, and Donnie Brasco (with Johnny Depp, yummy) sparked the idea for the plot. Grant goes undercover to immerse himself in Mafia life, risking not only his life, but that of Sophie and his nephew Ben as well. Eek! I love messing with my characters.
I've set a goal to finish this novel by December but my progress last weekend wasn't great. My kind father came up for a visit to drive me for a steroid injection in my back, and we spent time watching football (yay for Denver beating the Steelers--love to see Payton Manning back in there) instead of writing. Now my back feels great but I'm a bit behind, and I have to work this Saturday too, waah!
