What is your day job? Writer
What is your book about? The power of the mind. Any one of us can convince ourselves we are right in our own minds. The serial killer in Switched in Death has done this and takes the detective on quite a twisted journey at the expense of many innocent women’s lives.
Why did you want to write this book? I love reading mysteries/thrillers and trying to solve the case before the truth is revealed.
What would you say is the most challenging part of writing a book? What I call getting off the Ferris wheel. I can write a book and edit it to death, often times cutting out my voice, realizing it and then having to write things back into the story. I have to make myself get off the wheel and let go. Luckily, I have some terrific critique partners who help me with that.
Did you conduct any kind of research in order to write this book (visit certain locales, etc.)? I took to the Internet to research serial killers, but the most help was interviewing someone who had quite happily killed a woman and saw nothing wrong with taking a life. I hope I captured on paper the crazed look in this guy’s eyes when he told me his story. Way creepy!
