People often ask where writers get their ideas for stories. Well, most of the
time, we couldnâ€™t tell you, but once and a while, story ideas stem from real
life. My current release, UNLUCKY, comes straight from pages out of my own
life. Hereâ€™s the story behind the story:
My husband and I got married in 2000. At the time, I was working contract,
making fabulous money on these long-term accounting clean-up projects. I had
just ended a 13-month project and was taking the next three months off so I
decided to plan our wedding and study up for the honeymoon. Ah ha, I got you
there, didn't I? You were wondering what I was studying, and Iâ€™ll bet all sorts
of things that had nothing to do with Blackjack crossed your mind. But
Blackjack is exactly what I meant. You see, we were getting married in Vegas
and I had plans to take the Blackjack world by storm. By birth, I'm the product
of an accountant and an engineer so math is like breathing to me. I figured if
anyone can learn to beat the house, it ought to be me. So I started studying.
And I learned. Boy, did I learn.
