Just an off-hand question: Does the name Elena Collins come from anything vampire-related? Just wondering.
Glad you liked the book. Honestly, I can't remember where I came up with the name Elena Collins, but it wasn't a deliberate vampire reference. More likely it has to do with the fact that I walk my dog past the Collins Funeral Home every day.

True confession: I also tend to steal names from the tombstones at the local cemetery, although I mix up the first names and surnames so I don't accidentally turn somebody's dead relative into a secret Romulan sleeper agent!

I also get a lot of mileage out of baby name books and lists of the local high school graduates!
