Elena Hartwell Interview

So appreciate blogger/author Elena Hartwell’s ongoing support of debut and established thriller writers. Here’s a taste of the interview she conducted with me at the recent launch of my new thriller, What She Never Said. Elena asked about my choice of linking the series by place and theme as opposed to character. My response?


“I hadn’t considered a series when I wrote my first published novel, What She Gave Away. Set in Santa Barbara, California, the psychological thriller explores the dark side of wealth and privilege and the toxic effects of denial. When I came to the end of the novel, I felt my protagonists’ arcs were complete but I wanted to continue to explore the subject.” Thus, What She Never Said was born.
