The Writers' Wing would like to welcome its first inmate, crime fiction author S.L. Hebert.
S.L. Hebert was raised in the heart of Cajun Country, in South Louisiana. She was brought up appreciating family, the outdoors, and a great cup of coffee. She is a dedicated wife and mother of two. Having been an All-American athlete in her youth, she often volunteers to coach her two children’s baseball, softball, and volleyball teams.
In the last year, she’s discovered a passion for writing. Drawing on her military and law enforcement background, she takes her readers on a thrilling journey of mystery, suspense, and even a little romance in her new novel, “Ashes of A Sinner.” She has the gift of leaving them always wanting more and is currently working on her second book of the series, “The Case Files of Logan St. Martin.” (Sins For Truths Book #2) Set to release in March, 2018
Who is your cellmate, and why?
The fun side of me would love to have one of the characters from my book, “Ashes of A Sinner,” named Bria. She is Homicide Detective Logan St. Martin’s best friend and is truly a barrel of laughs. But staying true to my inquiring mind, I would have to say that I would want my serial killer better known as, the Sinner. He is demented and sadistic. I go to sleep every night needing to know how he ended up so twisted. Having him locked up in a cell with me would give me ample time to discover what makes him tick.
Which four books would you choose to pass the time with, and why?
My first choice would be, “The Last Victim,” by Karen Robards. I love her series, “Dr. Charlotte Stone” and could it read again and again.
The second book would be, “The Butterfly Garden,” by Dot Hutchison. Mainly because the girls manage to figure out a way to escape, and since I’m locked in a cell I’ll be looking for a way out.
My third choice is, “The Art of Forgiveness,” by Monique Orgeron. Even though I write murder mystery/suspense, I love to read a good romance that has a fantastic story line.
Lastly, I would pick my first novel, “Ashes of A Sinner.” It would be kept as inspiration, reminding me to always keep writing.
Which one of your own literary creations would you choose to visit you, and why?
I would pick Detective Logan St. Martin. She has the ability to see beyond the circumstances and basic evidence presented to her when dealing with her murder cases. Combine that with her quick wit and snarky ways, I’m sure between the two of us we could figure out a way to get me out of prison, leaving my killer the Sinner in the cell alone to rot away, as any serial killer should.
