How did you come up with the idea?
I was having coffee with a friend at an outdoor café. Our dog was quite interested in a man across the way who was talking to himself and very protective of a small blue and white cooler that was by his side. As the man became more agitated by our dog’s interest in his cooler, my friend leaned over to me and quietly whispered, “Maybe there’s a head in there!”

Who is the hero, how does he change the book?
Stranger to any of life’s tragedies, innocent, Ellen Singer, is thrown in to the most horrendous, challenging situation that any of us could ever imagine. Her new circumstances require strength or surrender and young Ellen rises to the occasion, trying her best to use her mind over the matter to survive her blood curdling situation. We cheer for the heroine, hoping that we would be as strong if given the same circumstances.
Why pick this title?
“Basking in the Light” is a play on words. My heroine is held captive in a dark cabin, except for a small crack of light. She focuses on that crack of light every day and imagines that she is basking in it. Essentially, it’s Ellen’s focus on the crack of light that keeps her sane.
