Based On My Hometown

Author Interview
Tyson Collins Author Interview

Homecoming Heist follows a group of downtrodden people who come together to pull off the largest heist their small town has ever seen. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

It was my senior year in high school at our own town’s homecoming parade. I leaned over to a buddy of mine standing on the sidewalk in front of the bank and said wouldn’t it be funny if somebody robbed the thing right now—they would get away with it because everyone is down here.

I enjoyed all the twists and turns in this novel. Did you plan them before writing or did they develop organically while writing?

They all developed organically while writing. Kind of like, ABCD Everything just fell into place.

What scene in the book did you have the most fun writing?

The parts describing Steamboat; it’s based on my home town.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

Great question! I’ve never thought about it, but several people have asked me about a sequel to Homecoming Heist. So now I’m giving that some thought. I do have 3 other projects that I would like to put into a novel so I’m trying to decide which one is next.

It is Fall in a small, unsuspecting midwest community when well-weathered Doug gets an idea for a quick payday. With not much going his way and multiple strikes against him, he has nothing to lose.

Doug enlists his nephew, Steve, on a scheme that has been brewing for years. He asks Phil, an old ally, but even he has reservations about this high-dollar payday. After their crime spree of three banks in one morning, the small town is left in a vulnerable state, and the short-staffed police department is feeling the pressure from the town folks. The Chief brings in Major Cases Crimes to help out, but a Rookie fresh out of the academy is all they sent. Lead officer Andy doesn’t take young Jay too seriously until he finds a small mistake by one of the bandits.

Pieces of the puzzle come together, and Andy and Jay let their instincts and training take over. Pulling at the thread that unravels the case wide open, they force the bandits into survival mode, but will justice prevail?
