9. What inspired you to write The Marine’s Secret Daughter?
The characters made me do it! J I used to belong to a
small in-person group of writers. We’d meet every month and do writing prompts.
One prompt (A friend calls and asks for help, no questions asked) resulted in a
character named Riley, who came to the rescue of his best friend’s sister. That
character stayed in my head and evolved until I had to write his story.

The Marine’s Secret Daughter

She has his eyes. Her mother has his
heart.
Years have passed since marine sergeant Riley Cooper last held his best
friend’s sister in his arms. Bound for Afghanistan, he believed walking away
from Meg McBride was the kindest thing he could do. Now that he’s home, he
doesn’t blame Meggie for hating him. But she hasn’t told him everything. And he
hasn’t met the little red-haired girl whose gray eyes so resemble his own…
