       Where there’s Smoke, There’s Fire….And a Great Story in the Making

   INTERVIEW THE AUTHOR WHO ‘FACED’ THE FIRE AND
  FLAMES TO GET INTO THE MIND OF A FEMALE ARSONIST

   Flashpoint: n: the lowest temperature at which vapors above a volatile combustible
               substance ignites in air when exposed to flame (Websters)

The life of a writer isn’t always easy and Debra Richardson believes that if you’re going
to tell story….TELL IT ACCURATELY!

Richardson, author of Flashpoint, a gritty realistic tale of a female arsonist, not only has
an eye for detail and a talent for suspense, but captivates with incredibly realistic
description.

In preparation for penning her story she spent considerable time inside the fire halls
across Canada actually training and experiencing first-hand the dangers firefighters face
every day.

“When I chose a subject to write about I do a great deal of research so my books are not
only entertaining, but realistic,” says Richardson. “I wanted to convey how fire is a
living, breathing demon with a mind all its own and capture its capability of destroying
everything in its path with little or no warning.”

Using first-hand knowledge gained from her training and research, Richardson captures
the searing reality that firefighters face every day and shares her insider information and
tales on:

      Getting inside the dark mind of an arsonist (without getting herself in trouble!)
      Strapping on equipment and training with firefighters
      The life and death situations firefighters face and the job that injures or claims at
       least one life every day
      The family support system that stands behind these brave men and women
      The importance of living your research and making it ‘real’
      The secret to keeping your audience riveted
      Writing for both men and women

“Ordinary citizens call upon firefighters in their most desperate time of need,” notes
Richardson. “I not only wanted to take my audience into the sinister world of arson, but
to acknowledge these brave firefighters who risk their lives for a living.”
