What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Rape, the violation of the human body, is an act I’ve always found despicable. That a man could do this to a woman should not be tolerated. The fact that few of these crimes are even reported, let alone end up with a conviction, is beyond belief. But the worst of it is, what a woman has to go through, at a trial and afterwards. The memory of it and how it affects their lives can be devastating. I wanted to write a book, that brings this home, and shows how a woman suffers in a sincere and sensitive way. Hopefully my book conveys this, as well as being a thriller/suspense/mystery in it’s own right.
