• What inspired you to write this book?
Originally this story was a five-hundred-word short story entitled the Atwood Code that I wrote based on the criteria I saw for a contest. I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could write a complete story in such few words. After I was done, one element I had to figure out and continued to nag me which was what was in the box that would cause people to go to great lengths to steal. Once I thought of it, I began to create the expanded version.
• How did you come up with the title?
The short story originally was a part of the Sugar anthology. The title was change to accompany being a part of the collection. After harassing my family and friends for words related to Sugar trying to create a title that fit. When I read the definitions of confection, one of them fit. So the Confection Assignment was born.
• What was the hardest part of writing your book?
The hardest part was trying to building a solid romance into a short suspense story. The original version, the couple was already married. In order to participate in the Sugar Anthology, I had to separate and build their relationship into the story without slowing down the momentum.
