Jeremy is the guy Jillian thought didn’t exist. He’s smart, fun, handsome and employed. He has nightmares, but so does she. When Jeremy’s nightmare comes to Washington DC, he has to tell Jillian the truth; he’s spent his entire adult life looking for the homegrown terrorists hidden among us.
You’ll be on the edge of your seat as Jillian, Olivia and their friends frantically join to help him solve the mystery: what are the Sleepers planning and how can they stop them from destroying the country.
1) What originally inspired you to get into writing?
I always have loved to read fantasy, but I couldn’t find anything at the time that was different, not a knock off of something else that was popular. So I decided to try to write something. Now I write in several different genres.
2) Where did the idea for Sleeper come from?
I have had the idea in my head for several years, so when I started writing suspense it seemed the perfect fit for this story. It came from a combination of things. The news, history and my imagination.
3) Was there any particular character that you liked or felt able to relate to?
Jeremy comes from a friend I had growing up, so I kinda knew this guy and his family.
4) Was there any particular character that you disliked?
OH I hate the bad guys.
5) Were there any scenes in particular that were particularly challenging or easy to write?
It was a complicated plot to write and I had so many ends to tie up, but I love the challenge of that with these kinds of books. I don’t want the reader to know what’s going to happen. Who really is good or bad. Not for sure.
6) Have any of your characters been inspired by real people?
Yes often it’s parts of different people I have known in my life or family members, traits, things like that. It makes the characters more real and relatable I think.
7) Are there any particular authors or books that have inspired you?
I love the classics, and Anne Rice inspired me to write about vampires, which I have a passion for.
8) Do you have any advice/pearls of wisdom for budding writers?
If you want to write, you have to write. Even if it’s just a little every day. Be consistent with it and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
The good Senator focused more attention to Jillian’s breasts than her face and Jeremy found his cavalier treatment of her angered him more than he wanted to admit.
