Nia Simone's: THE LAST STRAW, story idea #giveaway


Thanks for joining the party! I'm celebrating the release of my debut short story, The Last Straw, with a giveaway... leave a comment to be entered in a raffle for a copy of The Last Straw or a Wild Rose Press gift certificate. Good luck!
The idea for The Last Straw came from a magazine article about a woman PI who had her own company doing employee background checks. The freckle-faced, strawberry-blonde stared at me from my bulletin board until I wrote her story!

Interesting. Do you keep a running clipping file of other story-generators?

Hi Catherine,

Yes and no. I do cut out articles from the paper that I think lend themselves to story ideas and I clip pictures of people for possible characters.
