1: What is the working title of your book? Carbon Copy

2: Where did the idea come from for the book? For years, people would tell me they knew someone who looked exactly like me. I’d respond, “I must’ve been cloned!” Then ideas for my story poured into my head, and Carbon Copy was born.

3: What genre does your book fall under? Mystery/Romantic Suspense

4: Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition? Julia Stiles or Scarlett Johansson portrays my heroine, Lilly Allen. Matthew McConaughey or Bradley Cooper would play Grier Garrison. Eric Bana (with blue contacts) would play Joe. And Cybill Shepherd would play Lilly’s mother, Charlotte Allen.

5: What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book? What if someone cloned you?

6: Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? Published by Wild Child Publishing.

7: How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript? Two years to write my first draft and three more years to finish a submission worthy manuscript. But I thought about Carbon Copy for eight years before I started writing.

8: What other books would you compare this story to within your genre? Sue Grafton books.

9: Who or What inspired you to write this book? My mother, Leslie S. Talley, author of Make Old Bones.

10: What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest? A fast-paced page turner. Lilly Allen has brains, beauty, and a trust fund. She's living in New York City and her career as a reporter is taking off. She's hoping the love of her life, Grier, will propose soon. She has it all, or so she thinks.Grier Garrison, Create Life executive, is running the company while his father, Dr. Michael Garrison, is in the ICU awaiting a heart transplant. Grier knows the truth about Create Life and its shady side business. He fears Lilly and her twin brother, Luke, are in danger. While working on two unrelated stories, stolen newborns and cloning, Lilly discovers a shocking connection. Horrific things are happening, but who is behind it all?
