Author Insight - Behind the Scenes

What was the most difficult aspect of writing Overturned!?

Believe it or not it was creating names for the characters.  Gina Vincent was named after the daughter of good friends of mine.  Many of the names came from me selecting a first name of one person and last name of another from local news magazines.

Are the characters based upon friends and family?

Each of the characters has traits from both family members and friends.  In most cases I combined the traits of multiple people into one character.  It is much easier to create a believable character when using real life examples.
