Please check out Carla Neggers NEW RELEASE : Saint's Gate at Amazon. I give this book ★★★★★ = Amazing!
1. Carla what can you tell us about this book?
SAINT'S GATE is the first book in my Sharpe & Donovan series featuring FBI agents Emma Sharpe and Colin Donovan. Emma specializes in art crimes and comes from a family of renowned art detectives. Colin is a deep-cover agent who's very protective of his real identity and his family. They both are from the Maine coast but they're worlds apart in so many ways! In SAINT'S GATE, they have to get to the bottom of the murder of a nun and disappearance of a mysterious painting at a Maine convent…where Emma once was a novice.
2. Is this book written regarding an experience you had recently in your life?
I was able to draw on my extensive travels in Maine and Ireland, as well as my love of Boston. The lives of saints have intrigued me since I was a kid, but it was fascinating to learn more about specific saints and their role in western art.
3. If you could write a book with any other author who would it be?
Hm…I've never had the urge to co-write a book. I love so many different authors for their unique voices. And so many are friends. That's good enough for me right now.
4. You have written many books, do you have one that’s your favorite?
No favorites. I don't think that way. Each book is what it is. I let the story go and focus on the next one percolating in my head. Right now I'm writing HERON'S COVE, the second in my Sharpe & Donovan series after SAINT'S GATE.
5. Do you have a routine before writing?
Before writing? Good question! I'm disciplined but I'm not a regimented writer. I have to have coffee and breakfast before I get started, and most days, I take a good walk. The temperature has to be above zero, though. I'll jump on Wii Fit if it's below zero.
6. When did you start writing?
I can hardly remember a time when I wasn't writing. As a kid, I'd climb a tree with a pad and pen and spit stories. My favorite tree was a sugar maple on the edge of the woods at our house in rural Massachusetts, but I also liked an oak on an old stone wall up in the fields. I always had a story in the works! Still do.
7. Would any of your “in the closet/under the bed” books you wrote ever be published?
Not a chance. ;-)
8. Have you ever thought about writing a Young Adult Book?
If I had an idea that gripped me, I would, absolutely.
Great questions, Thanks for having me here!-Carla Neggers
