INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR, VINNY GREEN

Q1: What inspired you to write the novel "Nikki Armstrong - Measure of a Woman"?

A: Nikki Armstrong was born from my experiences as a dedicated corruption-fighting investigator in a corrupt world. The character's essence is primarily shaped by the incredible women I had the privilege to work with during my action-packed forty-three-year career. Many of Nikki's stories are rooted in their actual lives, though with a touch of poetic license.


Q2: Who are the most important characters in the book, and how significant are they to the novel's narrative?

A: The characters in the book are drawn from the real lives of the remarkable women with whom I've worked.

While fictionalized to some extent, their influence is pivotal in shaping Nikki's character and the overall narrative.

Q4: What makes "Nikki Armstrong - Measure of a Woman" a compelling read, and why should readers care about this work?
