Shelagh Watkins was one of the first people to interview me after the publication of Painted Black, so I am honored she found room for another round of questions and answers now that Bend Me, Shape Me is out. I hope you will click through to read the whole article. I talk about writing, my inspirations and what I’ve been up to lately. Here’s a teaser talking about where I got the idea for the plot.
“For Bend Me, Shape Me an article about a family suing their son’s psychiatrist planted the germ of an idea. Their autistic son had been exhibiting violent and dangerous behavior after beginning treatment and because the family insisted on further investigation, the police discovered the doctor was actually a paranoid schizophrenic who planned to brainwash his patients into becoming his own private security force. I simply asked myself “What if?” What if the patient had no family, no one who cared what happened to him? What might the end result have been? For me, the end result was this book.”

I started sending out press releases and review queries for Bend Me, Shape Me this week and the response has been encouraging. Shelagh Watkins is the first to spotlight the new Street Stories novel by posting my press release on her Literature & Fiction site. She also plans to do an interview later this year after the trade paperback is out. Thank you, Shelagh!
This post is the first of I hope many calling attention to the wonderful people who love reading and devote their time promoting authors like myself. As a writer, I am grateful for the exposure and as a reader I am glad to have so many sources that help me decide which books I want to read.
Check out Shelagh’s site and see if there are any other books that look good to you. She has loads of information posted.
