Fiorella's Literary Identity
Who the heck does Fiorella write like? Fiorella sent the first two chapters of Kinkaid House out to RWA members willing to speculate, and the votes are starting to come in.
Friend Janece nominates Grace Metalious of Peyton Place fame, plus Sandra Brown and Tami Hoag, in romance rather than mystery mode. Friend Vivien, who said KH feels like small-town, but not sweet-tea-and-mint, suggests a cross between a Lifetime movie and Twin Peaks. "There's an edge here," she adds. "There's that lingering sense that a lot of dark is going on under the surface." To which Fio replies, "You bet your booty!"
Anyone else want to check out the first two chapters?
