Robert Ludlum, John Grisham. I have enjoyed reading the city of series and the Bourne books by Eric Van Lustbader.
3. What was the inspiration behind your novel The Board?
I wanted to tell a story about what happens when the popular kids rise to power with fame, fortune and power. I was never a popular kid in high school but the book had a secondary meeting, I met a girl fourteen years ago and it was more a love story tribute to her. It was a way of closing a chapter that I had been meaning to close for a very long time.
