My grandfather was a bush pilot and had many emergency landings and a few landings that were considered downright crashes. One where his plane needed a new fuselage, another a prop and engine. But the worst was the plane crash of 1989 when he and my grandmother hit a mountain in Kodiak and barely survived. Gramps wasn't flying this plane, but he was instrumental in saving the lives of the other five passengers. My mother is writing about this true and inspiration story and I hope to share it with you soon.
My father was a pilot and now my oldest son. The need to be in the air runs thick in my family's veins, so when my agent suggested I write a short story, my first thought was about two people who'd loved each other and were now estranged fighting to survive a plane crash. I happen to love putting people in nightmarish situations. I'm diabolical like that.
Another note of interest, I started IMPACT on a harrowing plane ride to Bristol Bay, Alaska, which added to the realism of the book in my opinion. But in hindsight, talk about tempting fate!
