CIR: What was your inspiration?
BRACKETT: I've always loved mysteries. Nancy Drew was the first series I ever read, and I devoured each of the novels. As I grew up, I read as many different types of mysteries as I could find. Sherlock Holmes and Hercule Poirot were also favorite characters. When developing my central character, I drew on some of the things I knew from my real life. I've spent 26 years writing for newspapers and magazines, so it seemed only natural for Victoria James to be a journalist. My mythical town isn't completely based on where I live, but my hometown has certainly had its share of corruption and scandals as seen in this novella series.
