A personal note from Author Cassie Exline:
As an author I've been asked lots of times where do I get the ideas for the stories or novellas I write. The answer is from several places— could be from a silly commercial or a scene from a movie or a lyric from a song.
To explain a bit better. In said commercial we see several customers standing in line. A female customer notices a handsome man she thinks she knows. She gets out of line and approaches him. In commercial she has bad breath and the guy make a face and runs out of the store.
We're only limited by our imagination.
As I was leaving the grocery store once, I noticed the community bulletin board. Lots of ads but one caught my attention: Computer tech can fix anything. Well I wondered if he could fix my overheating problem of my computer. In my story, the computer guy put out the heroine’s burning fire.
The Sheryl Locke Holmes Mystery Series came about due to a submission call from Wild Child Publishing. My love for jewelry took over and I made one of the main characters a jewelry designer. It’s an idea I’ve often thought about writing. In keeping with the series, each stone—Amber, Ruby, Opal and Pearl—are also names of characters.
