Mathiya Adamsabout this book: Wanda is a construction worker who operates the wrecking ball to demolish buildings on a construction site. When one of her friends gets killed in what is called an industrial accident, she is suspicious and contacts former Denver detective Mark MacFarland to investigate the accident.
This story was inspired when I was driving downtown and saw a dozen homeless men peering through the fence surrounding the construction site, watching the wrecking ball in action. I immediately saw the whole story unfold in my mind, and by the time I got home, I dove into the first draft of the Busty Ballbreaker.
One of the keys to the story was the incident with corpse-sniffing dogs. I interviewed a retired police officer who handled the dogs and his stories inspired me to include the dogs in my story.
Some of my readers object to the questionable title. The Busty Ballbreaker sounds like a put-down, but the people on whom Wanda is based are real, loveable, and worthy of being immortalized in Wanda's persona.
