C. Kay Brooksabout this book: While waiting for my current book (and yet to be published) to process through a lengthy contest, my son suggested, "Hey, mom, why don't you write a book about a lady bus-driver and tell the stories you've told us through the years."
I am a tour-bus driver who has driven a motor coach in 36 states and Mexico, so I do have a few stories to tell.
At the time, I was driving through Mono County CA a lot as well as visiting on my personal time. I wanted to include the winter aspect of driving a coach and had a quirky idea for the meeting of the lead characters, so Mono County seemed a good choice to set the story.
My readers have shared that they enjoyed learning about the driving a tour bus from a woman's perspective, as well as the job itself. Many readers who have no experience with CA or the Sierras have expressed their enjoyment in learning things they didn't know.
My co-workers and friends have "razed" me so much about what should be included in the "next book", or asked for more information about my characters, that I actually wrote a second novel that picks up where Unexpected Rendezvous ends.
Most of my co-workers are men and have enjoyed reading the novel, but their wives reading the novel actually sparked conversation, I'm told. One driver was paranoid that I was going to allow my female lead to become a "happy house wife" and give up her strong ways when I wrote the second novel.
My husband actually chose the title that actually helped me come up with titles of later novels. Unexpected Rendezvous led to A Deadly July!
