Why the title?
Well, often there is a thin line between right and wrong. Between knowing and lucky guessing. Between wellness and illness. Between life and death. I’d guess you, like me, agree there is a thin line between thinking murder and committing murder. Most of us well-adjusted social animals never go beyond detailed, graphic thinking on this riff. What interest me are stories about characters who cross the line—generally deliberately, with malice aforethought.
Publishing two romantic comedies and two romantic suspense novels, I wrote about the transformative power of love. That power appeals to me, but . . . the dark side also appeals. Because I think there walk among us many who don’t have now or have lost the hope of that transformative power.
Sounds kind of bleak in black and white. Not my intention. If rumors are close to being accurate, Amazon publishes about 3,000 books every day. I think there’s a place for the noir and the upbeat in the world of books.
I hope you’ll check back for some more of my thoughts on the thin line. In the meantime, thanks for checking out my site. One of the best parts of writing is talking with the readers I write for. So, drop me a note here. I read and respond to all my mail.
The first novella in my 3-part novella serialization, The MISfIT, is waiting for a final edit. Here’s the cover.
