My Inspiration for DANGEROUSLY PLACED by Nansi Kunze
DANGEROUSLY PLACED actually started life as a short story I wrote a couple of years before my first novel, MISHAPS, was accepted for publication. Back then I was frantically trying to get short stories published, so that my writing CV would look more impressive when I submitted my first novel manuscript to publishing houses. I’d sent a bunch of them off to magazines in Australia and the US, and one editor replied with a particularly kind rejection letter. He liked my style, he said, and hoped I would submit another story.
