Sure, my books are fiction but I do sometimes muse characters from people I know (or even strangers!) In I Can Handle Him, I was wanting another best friend for the character Tory, and I wanted him to be a guy. Even better: a gay guy. I found tremendous inspiration in my own hairdresser, Daniel. Together we talked about this "best friend guy" and he gave me great ideas. When it came time to name him, I told him my ideas but then he planted his hands on his hips and insisted "this guy has to be named Daniel." So, that's how Daniel was born! Watch #MyBooksIn30Seconds for a great clip of him.

From Midwest Book Reviews:
A simply riveting read with more twists and turns than a Coney Island rollercoaster, "I Can Handle Him" is especially and unreservedly recommended for community library Romance & Mystery collections.
I love Sara's honesty and humor in this review. (Plus the book left her craving cookies!)

What a thoughtful and thorough review from Girl Who Reads:
"The investigation to clear Nick's name and the romantic elements of the novel dovetail nicely, and we're left with a satisfying ending for the main characters. This is an engaging read that really sucked me in and had me rooting for them the entire way."
