cj Sez: From the Facebook press release from the Mobile Writers Guild: “The Mobile Writers Guild is excited to shine the spotlight on the local contributors of our 2021 anthology, STORMY PIECES, as we countdown to our book signing at November’s ArtWalk (in downtown Mobile).”
“Today we asked suspense writer cj petterson Author what inspired her short story, “Ida, Fate, and Mister Leon.”
(And cj Sez:) “The idea for my story started way back in 2005 when I saw a writing prompt about a woman doing a traditionally man’s job. I wrote a few pages featuring an unnamed November storm then buried the draft in an “Ideas” file.
When the MWG published a call for submissions for STORMY PIECES, I thought, “Eureka! I’ve already written that story.” So I dug it out and named the November storm Hurricane Ida, after the one that meandered around the U.S. in 2009.
If you’re in the Mobile area, anthology copies, as well as cj’s thriller/suspense novels, will be available at The Haunted Book Shop, 109 Dauphin St in Downtown Mobile for an ArtWalk book signing, November 12th, 6-8pm”
