A&RBC: Where does your inspiration for your characters come from?
A&RBC: What are you hoping readers take from your book?
Shawn: I hope readers who read my book leave with a positive feeling about my writing style and my ability to create a strong storyline with believable characters. I’m dedicated to my craft so that means a lot to me. My book deals with many issues i.e. trust, death, and loyalty so there are things that could enhance what my readers are already aware of in life.
