Jessie Humphreys On 'Killing Ruby Rose'

We’ve come a long way from the days when teen readers could live vicariously through  Nancy Drew.  The heroine of Jessie Humphries young adult novel is Ruby Rose and, like Nancy Drew, Ruby Rose is a sleuth. Unlike Nancy, she packs heat and wears Prada.

So where does this Las Vegas author find her inspiration? Does she have a natural affinity for crime stories since she’s lawyer by day? And how did she achieve that perfect synergy of writing talent and marketing savvy that landed her book in the list of top ten sellers for Kindle?
