When a scene just isn’t flowing, I hop on my bicycle, I go for a run or I go hiking. After that invigorating time in nature, typically my muse is eager to play and I find my flow again. If not, I don’t push it and I let it go for the day.
As an EMT and a Haz-Mat and FEMA Operative for a decade, I naturally integrate my firsthand medical and rescue experience and knowledge into my stories. The medical and EMS aspects I write are a combination of fiction and various elements I’ve handled working 911 scenes throughout the years. The idea for the killer’s character in Final Trimester brewed in my head the first month I worked in EMS based on an individual I encountered.
