DEAD RINGER by Mary Burton: “…characters that just grab me and seem to demand their own story.”


dead-ringerIt never fails, when I’m wrapping up a novel, there are characters that just grab me and seem to demand their own story. That’s the way it was with DEAD RINGER and Christmas Past which is in the SILVER BELLS anthology with Fern Michaels, JoAnn Ross and Judy Duarte. The two female characters in my first romantic suspense I’M WATCHING YOU that needed their own stories were Kendall Shaw and Nicole Piper. Kendall Shaw was an over the top reporter in I’M WATCHING YOU and she was such a force that I knew if I paired her with Detective Jacob Warwick and gave them a great mystery to solve I had the makings of a great story. And Nicole Piper, who was also in I’M WATCHING YOU and DEAD RINGER, really needed her storyline wrapped up. She teams with Detective David Ayden in Christmas Past to solve a mystery. And I must say, Christmas Past turned out to be a sexy, exciting book.

Mary Burton is the author of the romantic suspense, Dead Ringer. You can visit her website at www.maryburton.com.
