From the Author
Once I knew that I wanted to tell my sister's story that way, a lot of other elements I had been playing with -- the slight difference between romance and tragedy, the tragic decline of marriage, how the hard-boiled genre works from a female perspective, and a piece I had been sketching that was a loose interpretation of Shakespeare's Othello -- wanted to get in on it.
Somewhere along the way, I also found myself creating a world where journalists are heroes, chauvinists are villains, and people doing everyday jobs -- detective, owner of a sleezy clickbait site, bartender, IT guy -- band together to save the world from evil.
Someone once told me, "Don't save your ideas for something else. Cram them in." That runs counter to magazine writing, but it worked here, I think. In fact, it encouraged a story that started out as one mystery to become a long-form story arc with five parts. Each book is one piece of a larger story. I'm not saying any more about that until book five is completed.
