Guest Post: Books that influenced Calculated Contagion author @ktleewrites @LoveBooksGroup


Dani Christensen is a vaccine researcher who has spent her career proving she is more than just the daughter of the company's CEO. However, as her accomplishments in contagious disease research grow, the wrong people begin to notice. When Dani is isolated from her colleagues at a well-regarded conference in Europe, she is kidnapped and taken to an isolated camp in the Carpathian Mountains.

CIA officers Cam Mitchell and Tyler Scott are sent to observe a suspicious group of armed men in rural Romania. When Cam sees Dani being brought into the camp against her will, he and his partner rescue her and bring her safely back to the United States. The CIA initially believes Dani was kidnapped for ransom, but they soon realize her kidnapper has followed her back to her lab. Now, the CIA must work with their allies in the FBI to catch Dani’s kidnapper before he releases a potentially deadly contagion for his own political gain.

Calculated Contagion is Book 2 in The Calculated Series. All books in The Calculated Series may be enjoyed as standalone novels or as a series.

Books I loved growing up that influence me today

I am an engineer who not only loves digging into technical details but also likes to write books and perform improv comedy for fun. Similarly, my books combine a number of different elements – they are part cozy mystery and science thriller with a bit of fun and romance along the way. Growing up, I had favorite books that fell into a number of different categories. However, the common thread in all of them was an intriguing, character-driven story.
While I maintain a deep appreciation for the classics (Pride and Prejudice or Twelfth Night, anyone?), it was more contemporary books that drew me in and captivated me until 3 o’clock in the morning. Those fast-paced stories really nurtured my love for the written word and encouraged my own writing. I loved Jurassic Park for its twisty, science-based adventure that made my heart pound as I read every word. The Hunt for Red October was probably my first exposure to what would become a long line of spy thrillers and showed me the great fun that reading can be. I can’t tell you how many Mrs. Murphy mysteries I read by Rita Mae Brown. The banter between the “talking” animals kept me entertained even as their mistress, Mary Minor “Harry” Harristeen, got herself mixed up in all kinds of trouble.

While my cozy thrillers offer up their own unique twist on the thriller genre, they share the same focus on the characters as my favorite books with a bit of page-turning fun along the way. My goal as a writer is always that my audience will find as much joy in my work as I did my favorite stories growing up.

Maddie's story raises the time-honored question of nature vs. nurture.

Parents abused by adult children suffer silently, shamed to the marrow by words, moods, acts, and blows that pierce through their imagined bubble of safety and kidnap any notions they had of sharing a mutually loving relationship with their children.
Maddie loved her daughters unconditionally . . . until, as a financially depleted and physically bruised senior citizen, she was forced to cut ties permanently with her adult descendants
