– Hi Jodi, I am a HUGE fan of your books., and have them all so far.

How, do you research for your novels? Where do you research and how long does it take you to research all the background information needed for each of your novels? I really admire the depth of knowledge in each of your novels and the stories you create.
How do you create believable characters that resonate with readers? I myself hope to soon publish my first book. What advice would you give me in my journey towards publication?
