What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Her Name is Hazel?
The characters of Killian and Hazel came to me while driving my kids to school one day. Their story takes place in my hometown, and each day a little bit more of their story would play out in my head.
I actually was going to wait to write Her Name is Hazel until I had finished the 3rd book in my Confession series, but Killian and Hazel were very determined for me to work on theirs. I’m extremely glad I did. The entire story was written in thirteen days, and it’s been a consistent best seller since being published.
