Author Jaime Rush plots murder and mayhem where ever the mood strikes her!

Ever hear a murder plot in progress?

I often brainstorm with my mom or my husband. A few weeks ago I was trying to figure out some plot points in book five of my Offspring series.

I confess that while immersed in story and plot issues I am not thinking about who is around me. I'm sure the bartender got an earful!

One of the funniest incidences was what we now call "The Red Lobster story." My mom and I were plotting, trying to figure out how my villain, a serial killer, would get rid of the bodies of the young women he's killed without leaving trace evidence.

In 2012, the world came to a grinding halt as radiation hit from a massive solar storm. Crops died, animals perished, cities fell and humans became little more than beasts themselves.
