The idea for Tesla’s Stepdaughters came while I was playing Rock Band 2 on my Nintendo Wii. I was playing it a lot over the summer in 2009. As part of the game, you create your band, and the band I created became The Ladybugs. The original band name was actually Tesla’s Stepdaughters, but when I got around to writing the story, it just seemed to make more sense that the band standing in historically for The Beatles would have a similar name.
I am really pleased with Tesla’s Stepdaughters. I think I was successful in creating a setting for the story, without delving too deeply into it. I’m really happy with my mystery. I never really thought I would be able to write a mystery story, and while some might point out that the mystery is the weakest part of the story (and I wouldn’t argue that), for me, I’m pretty pleased.
Recently, Tesla’s Stepdaughters has been getting more and more interest. It continues to slowly climb in sales and is the best selling of any of my single (non-series) books.
