As a writer, I work hard at breaking away from stereotypes, which isn’t always
easy, especially if it involves a culture you’re not that familiar with. Such
was the case with GRAVE INTENT, my second book. One of the main characters was
from a particular Roma clan, and I knew very little about gypsies except what
I’d seen on television or read in books. A good bit of research, including
spending time with an actual Roma family, did wonders to help me break out of
any mental stereotypes about the culture.
