Did you ever play tag when you were young? Well, here's the author version. I've been tagged for the revolving game, The Next Big Thing. Authors everywhere are playing it.  This week I'm It! It's my turn. So here goes. My next big thing:

Ten Interview Questions for The Next Big Thing:What is the working title of your book? 
Deadbeat Dads

Where did the idea come from for the book?
This idea came from my husband. He went to the bank and said two women were having a conversation about men who don't pay child support.

What genre does your book fall under?
Women's Fiction

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
Boy that's a tough one.  I can't honestly say.

What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
When Erica Morris's husband leaves her for a younger woman, her life drastically changes.

How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I'm still working on it. Off and on for three years.

What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Not sure there is one.

Who or What inspired you to write this book?
My husband came home with the idea. He heard it at a bank between two women.  Also a few friends who have gone through divorce.

What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
It's not just about divorce or deadbeat dads. Erica starts a support group for women dealing with deadbeat dads. In the process she manages to contact some of the men, is being black mailed and meets a man with a deadbeat wife.

I'm passing the torch on to other writers I enjoy. I wonder what their next BIG thing is? Let's see together!!
