Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is based on some local headlines. A company came to town with great fanfare and lots of press. They claimed they were going to add thousands of high paying technical jobs. They struggled for three years and made the news on several occasions for failure to pay their employees. After talking with many of those employees, I had an idea for this book. My brother-in-law told me that I needed to write a book about the company and gave me the title one evening as our families were out to dinner. Once he gave me the title, it all just clicked and Book 1 is now in print.
