A few months after Almost Taken was released I received an email from a reader asking me what happened to Hayden. Hayden? I honestly couldn’t recall writing about a Hayden. I had to leaf through the book I wrote to find him. There he was, somewhere in the middle, all of two sentences referring to him, brother of main character, lost at sea years ago, never to be heard from. More time goes by and another reader asks, What Happened To Hayden?!
Uh, he drowned, that’s what happened to him! He’s not even in the darn story!(I didn’t send this reply, just thought it). So, I’m into writing Almost Guilty when I get another email, and another (I am not making this up!), from readers wanting to know what happened to poor Hayden. I think, enough already. If the guy DIDN’T drown, where’s he been for the past eight years?
Thus the birth of Almost Forsaken. Thank you to all those readers who thought beyond my pages!
