Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
I don’t know really well I mean there were many factors I guess. I have always been interested in the psychology of the human mind. What makes a person commit murder, how do they get to that point in life? So I decided to write about about a serial killer searching for the same answers. In Tainted Innocence everything is from Logan’s point of view so you are actually living through his eyes.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
A friend of mine named C.J. Parker helped me come up with my book titles. By the way anyone reading this should really check out her books.

After my mother was brutally murdered, my abusive father pawned me off on my aunt. But, I am not like them. I am not like anyone. You see, I have these urges that no one understands. I want to know why I am the way I am. I want to know who killed my mother. Most of all, I want revenge!
I would love it if you and to the release party for Tainted Innocence! https://www.facebook.com/events/1984780815139036/
