The inspiration for the character of Kate in Shattered Trust came from Liliana Lovell, the original owner of the Coyote Ugly saloon.
Circa 2005, after watching the reality show where singing and dancing female bartenders auditioned for jobs at a Coyote Ugly saloon, I got the idea for a cougar bar owner who falls in love with a younger bartender. But the story never gelled – until I added the BDSM elements, then everything fell into place. 😉
