Each book listed is based on an incident read in a newspaper article or some other form of inspiration. Ideas for novels are all around us. Sometimes I use an idea from a dream, and sometimes the title of the book jumps into my head and demands to tell me the story as with THE STONE KILLER. All I do is place my fingers on the keyboard and let the characters tell me what to write. I hope you enjoy my novels and look forward to supplying you plenty of books to read. The best to you always, Dreamah H. Lockwood
