And now, here’s me and Lynette!

1) What gave you the idea for HIDE AND SEEK?

I get asked a lot where I get my ideas. I honestly don’t always know. They just come to me. LOL. I knew I wanted to write a series involving characters who find lost children. Hence Finding the Lost, Inc. was established. I also knew I needed to diversify the story lines, meaning they had to be different enough to be interesting, yet all deal with missing children. Book 1 is Hide and Seek. The heroine’s daughter was kidnapped three years ago and she became a skiptracer to do whatever it took to find her. In Book 2, CHRISTMAS COVER UP, the heroine is a police detective whose sister was kidnapped fourteen years ago. She became a detective to find her sister but has hit nothing but dead ends. She hires Finding the Lost, Inc to get involved. In book 3 which doesn’t have a title yet, the heroine IS the missing child who wants to find her family.

2) If your heroine had a favorite dessert, what would it be and why?

Chocolate cake. Very simple, yet absolutely delicious. She might even go a little crazy and add a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

3) If your hero could have any car, what would he choose and why?

My hero’s not really into material things. He’s not flashy, but he does admire a good set of wheels. He would probably choose a king cab truck that would be big enough for the instant family he’s going marry but serviceable and dependable. He also would use the truck to help others if they needed it.

4) What was your favorite/funnest scene to write in HIDE AND SEEK?

Probably the ending. I always enjoy the tense moments where the heroine or hero is in trouble and rescue is on the way. I also love the villain reveal. That moment when the reader goes: “So he/she’s the bad guy!” Love those kind of scenes.

Camy, thanks for having me! These were fun questions to ask. I hope your blog readers enjoy them also. I have a question for those interested in entering the contest: What are your favorite kind of characters? What kinds of occupations do you like to read about?

Thanks again, Camy!

Camy: Thanks for being here today, Lynette!

Hide and Seek
by Lynette Eason

Erica James has spent the past three years as a skip tracer, hunting down others and hoping one day it will lead to her kidnapped daughter. Now she has a new suspect—Max Powell's missing sister. Max, a private investigator, has found evidence that connects the two missing girls, and together, he and Erica search for answers. The closer they get to finding answers, the stronger their feelings for each other become. But the kidnapper will stop at nothing—including murder—to keep them from finding Erica's daughter.
