No Refuge From the Grave By Nancy Herriman: Review/Giveaway/Interview

by Kathleen Costa

It’s November, 1867, San Francisco. Celia Davies came to the city with her husband, yet for three years, she’d thought herself a widow. She worked hard to be a well-respected nurse servicing the needs of a diverse community at her free clinic. Through happenstance, she also became known as a detective, of sorts, partnering with Detective Nick Greaves with whom she found she was attracted and free to foster a nice friendship.

Authors are often asked how they came up with the idea for their book. I don’t know how others answer that question, but for me the reply is that it’s rather a puzzle. Often, inspiration has been triggered by random events: a snippet of overheard conversation that suggests an intriguing conflict (one reason I missed working in coffeeshops during the pandemic—all those lost opportunities for a new idea!), an article in the newspaper that presents a host of fascinating possibilities, or even something as obscure as the definition of an unusual phrase found in an old dictionary (which led to the basis of the first novel I ever published).
