Readers and book clubs often ask: “How did you get the idea for this book?”
In response, I’ve written brief answers for each book in the Tawny Lindholm Thriller series.
Here’s the story behind Stalking Midas #2 in the series.
WHERE THIS IDEA CAME FROM:
What is the con artist’s secret weapon? They target a victim’s vulnerabilities and emotions.
I saw an ad in a senior newspaper that asked: Who will care for your pets if something happens to you?
That made me wonder: What if a con artist preyed on the love that seniors have for their pets?
The glamorous villain in Stalking Midas takes advantage of a wealthy man who’s estranged from his family but adores his cats. She convinces him to invest in a luxury pet sanctuary to care for them after he dies. Only problem–the sanctuary doesn’t exist.
Stalking Midas delves into elder fraud, a growing crime that threatens parents, grandparents, friends, and maybe even you!
