Checkpoint Author Visits The Faust Hotel

There's quite a lot of history to be found in the small towns outside of San Antonio. One of these gems happens to be The Faust Hotel & Brewing Company located just 15 minutes from my house, right up I35 North, in the town of New Braunfels, Texas.

Mondays are usually so dull, but my friend Carmen was off work, and we decided to head on over to The Faust for dinner. I found it online when checking for good places to scarf down some German food, and when I saw the name of it, I knew we had to go there. As many of you know, one of my engaging Checkpoint series characters shares the same last name, Herman Faust, the dry-witted Direktor of the Landeskriminalamt (LKA). I felt it was a sign, one that screamed "Come here!"

Off we gals went, enjoying great conversation on the way. The Faust sits on S. Seguin Ave. near the historic downtown region of New Braunfels. Out front of this four-story hotel is a bubbling fountain that is part of the front-facing wall. The night desk …

Modern Day Slavery and the Hidden Horrors of Human Trafficking

As a writer, I'm very much influenced by the news I read every day. (I'm an unapologetic news junkie). So many of the stories I read hit me right in the heart and send me into fits of outrage, but none so much as the trafficking of women and children in the sex trade. I hadn't realized how much it affected me until book three in my Checkpoint, Berlin series came out. All three books deal with this issue from both the law enforcement side, and from the point of view of characters. It hit me as quite a shock. When, exactly, had I decided to tackle this issue in this manner?

I think two things are true about writers: One, we feel things deeply. It's often why we write. We need the outlet. These thoughts and emotions have to go somewhere, and two, the writing process itself is a mystery. Even when I plot out a story, it takes twists along the way, veering off into dark and unexpected alleys as the characters take on their own lives, leading me, and demanding I follow.
