I continued to buy baby-naming books, finally having a legitimate reason once I started writing. Two of my favorites are Beyond Jennifer and Jason and The Baby Name Personality Survey. But I like the traditional ones, as well.
Still, I love names. And in writing my newest book, Murder of a Bookstore Babe, which debuted March 1, the character’s names are a much better fit. I chose Risé for a strong, but unique woman, Kayla for a young woman with big dreams, and Orlando, a battle scarred Vietnam Vet who wants the peace of being a small town baker.
