About the Book
The Devil is in the Details is a suspense/crime thriller in which two Miami PD detectives must rise above their differences to halt a sadistic sex offender. Detective Cambell is a former special agent of the FBI, and Detective Russell is accustomed to working alone—indeed the makings of an explosive end when they are forced to work together, particularly when their hot-temperaments, egos, and pride are in a race against time.
The Devil is in the Details is an idiom that refers to a catch or mysterious element hidden in the details, meaning that something might seem simple at first glance but will take more time and effort to complete than expected. –Wikipedia

Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
Saamyah Anne Cambell is a former special agent of the FBI, now a detective with local law enforcement. She absconds from Texas for a temporary duty assignment in Florida to cope better with familial losses. Thrust into a new environment, cantankerous partner, and mystifying case, Saamyah soon realises that the very agony she was running from is ultimately the same torment she is running to.
Bryan Terrell Russell has been a lone detective with local law enforcement since the resignation of his career-long partner. Accustomed to coming, going, and doing as he pleases, the assignment of a new partner is not only inconvenient for him but also uncomfortable. Torn between the desire to be right and the obligation to do the right thing, Bryan must strategically balance personal sacrifices and professional gains.
Together they must rise above their differences to halt a sadistic sex offender. In a race against time, hot-temperaments, egos, and pride, the quest to discover the devil in the details is no easy feat—particularly when one partner believes that the truth sets one free and the other never felt captive to lie.

Any reader that enjoys reading literature among the following genres/subjects: crime, thriller, suspense, mystery, betrayal, detectives, police, and law enforcement.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
I enjoy reading suspense and crime thrillers. Although I do not have a current favourite author, I did enjoy reading R.L. Stine’s “Fear Street” series as a child. His series was the perfect balance of mystery and suspense that I sought as a young reader; they definitely encouraged my reading habit.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
Write what you love or what you have the greatest interest in. Following the advice to write what is trending will make the writing process less enjoyable. So, stay true to your craft and your passion–this will not only ensure that your manuscript will be completed, but your readers will ultimately receive the authentic you.
