Based on true events, this erotic thriller novel tells the tale of a young, naive woman named Tanya who enters the online dating and chat world. Her first foray into this digital realm initially proves to be bland and disappointing; however, sex, suspense, power struggles and attempted murder soon unfolds. These unexpected adventures interfere with her business and her sanity as she aspires to live up to her deceased parent's wishes. A 2001 FBI case targeted specific chat users and resulted in the arrest of more than 100 people in the United States. After years of investigation and numerous federal trials in December 2012, chat rooms were shut down. The story is based on interviews conducted anonymously with some users.
What was the most surprising thing you learned in creating your book?
The learning curve was setting up an interview with paralegal team. I got to knowthat when and how a case is pushed to a federal court.
How did this story occur to you?
This story based on my personal experience of identity theft. While talking it out with a friend, she shared her experience in chat rooms. That was only the start!
What do you think makes a good story?
More than the plot I believe it's the characterization. Readers may relate to the character more than the plot.
Do you have any upcoming books?
Yes, I am working on The Wild Cat Book 2. Introducing few new characters and continuing the story with Monica, Sam, and Aaron.
What is the hardest thing about being a writer?
It took me five long years to come up with the perfect plot for The Wild Cat. The information available, the damage, the suffering out there is overwhelming. To narrow it all down in three parts was challenging.
Which novelist do you admire the most?
Can you tell us about your writing process? What's a typical writing day for you?
