Rachel is an interesting and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind her character?
I decided to set her character around my own experience as a nurse in my earlier years and incorporate places I have visited.
This was a mystery novel that was filled with unexpected twists. What were some themes you wanted to capture in this book?
I wanted to capture Myanmar particularly as it really is a beautiful country with lovely, friendly people. I have visited Myanmar 5 times so I guess that speaks for itself. The book just evolved on one of my visits to Burma, when sitting at the beach after visiting their main jewelry market (Scot’s Market) where there was a plethora of ruby’s on sale.
What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?
I have since written 2 other books of different genre. The Power of Childhood Dreams ( a pre-teen book) and Turn Pain Off – both of which are under my marital name. Linda Hehir.
