Melinda Craigabout this book: Reading all things paranormal and magic, plus a deep love of cozy mysteries, inspired this story. I love being taken to another place, inside a book's characters and world. Cozy mysteries and fantasy are my go to for when I need to get away and I hope that this story does the same for my readers.
I created my main character, Lindsey, to be a little prickly. She's a tough gal who's had a tough life. Living with a strange, unwanted ability can do that to a person. I took time imagining what a world would look like for Lindsey...and how the world would treat her. She can't touch another person's skin, unless she wants to be forcibly pulled inside their memories. Taking that into account, long gloves and clothes were a must. She also needed a way to live, what better way then using the curse that made her so unusual?
Then I had to add some fun by throwing in a handsome, devilish distraction. Lindsey was unimpressed, but the detective grew on her.
This story was fueled by coffee and curiosity as I got lost inside the world. I suppose that's also why it ended up a series and that I'm now wrapping up the third story. It's been a fun ride and I'm looking forward to continuing the series and seeing what trouble I can concoct for our Lindsey next.
What can I say? Coffee, books, and living inside a character's mind...those are the best places for me to be. <3
