Please tell us a bit about your book and what you hope readers take away from reading it.
Think of it as women’s fiction with an edge, blending emotion, complex relationships and mystery. Twelve years after tragedy tore their family apart, the Camerons are reuniting for the first time since that fateful day. They hope that they will at last be able to put the past behind them and lay their ghosts to rest, but of course, nothing is ever that simple! As the web of hostility and deceit begins to unravel, and the truth about what really happened on that long ago summer’s afternoon finally emerges, family ties are tested to the limit. I hope it’s the kind of book readers will want to revisit, and that they will discover something new each time.
Who are your favorite characters in the story?
Ooh, that’s such a tough question. I love all my characters, even the obnoxious ones. I’m not a mother, but I suppose it’s rather like having children. You love them no matter what! In terms of the relationship I enjoyed writing the most, it was probably that between Joel and Tim. Once inseparable, all the closer for being best mates as well as twins, a misunderstanding has led to a 12-year rift. It broke my heart, having to write two such decent guys at loggerheads.
