Thank you for stopping by Nesie’s Place today, Kathy!

Your latest release is book two in the thriller trilogy, A Path to Deception. What inspired the trilogy?

Two is actually the second part of my first trilogy when I started writing. The inspiration to write a book came from wanting to leave a legacy for my grandchildren and the subject of art as vehicle to launder money has always fascinated me.

 How did you arrive at the title?

MindGames and Murder refers to how Isabella’s husband was playing MindGames, Gaslighting her to drive her t6o a breakdown so he could take over her art gallery.

 The blurbs say they’re standalone reads, but are they connected in any way?

Yes. They all revolve around how art was used to fund a terrorist attack on Westminster, Notre Dame and the Vatican. Book one (THREE) introduces how the art is forged and the money launder starting in the US -and the last page there is a simultaneous attack on all 3 churches. Book two (TWO) takes us the Paris where the backstory of how the attack occurs in Paris. Book Three (ONE) ties up the trilogy and explains how the funding for the terrorist attacks also had a dual role, in addition to the attacks also had planted the seeds to implode world economies. THREE, TWO, ONE, BOOM! 

 Can you tell us about one of the stories?
