The Two Minute Interview: Author Sandra Dailey

I’m very pleased to welcome Sandra Dailey to tell us about her latest novel, CLOSE ENEMY.

I really like your title, Sandra. What’s your book about?

Sandra: It’s a romantic/suspense about stalking, kidnapping, murder, past tragedies and a baby.

That’s heavy stuff! I’m a big fan of romantic suspense. When is the moment that matters most/turning point in your book?

Sandra: When the villain realizes he also has a stalker intent on destroying him.

Interesting – a villain with a stalker. Where is the setting?

Sandra: Up town Tampa and down town Ybor City, Florida.

Florida sounds like the perfect place for villains, heroes, heroines and romance. How did you come to write this book?

Sandra: My hero was a secondary character in Common Enemy. At one point he had to give an alibi. That’s where my heroine was born.

It’s fun finding the opportunity to flesh out secondary characters. Which character is your fave?

Sandra: I most love creating my villains. Weird, I know.

I agree! Villains are fascinating to create. Why should I (or any reader) read your lovely creation?

Sandra: It’s exciting and sinister with heartbreak, romance and a little humor mixed in.

I love books with a little humor mixed in. Sounds like an exciting read! Thanks so much for joining me today, Sandra!

Sandra, your cover evokes sooooo much suspense. I love how the characters draw me in to what sounds like a wonderful romantic suspense.

Andrea Downing

The book sounds great, but where the heck is Ybor?? Does it exist?

Sandra Dailey

Hi Andrea. Yes Ybor City does exist. It’s a suburb of Tampa that was started by Cuban immigrants long, long, ago. It’s kind of like the little Havana section of Miami.

Lida, love the idea of a 2-minute interview. Less is more!!

Sandra, Intriguing storyline for Close Enemy…I’m putting it on my TBR list.
