Q1: What’s the premise of your new book?
A woman meets another woman with the same name and birthday in an airport bar. A week later, all her money is gone. She decides to investigate herself when the police won’t look into it and finds a trail of identically named victims.
Q2: What would you like people to know about the story itself?
This is a fast-paced thriller with a lot of twists.
Q3: What do your characters have to overcome in this story? What challenge do you set before them?
The main character, Jessica, was brought up in a cult, which she escaped from when she was 18. She had to build an identity for herself outside of that world.
Q4: What unique challenges did this book pose for you, if any?
Having four characters with the same name was a challenge! I had to give them all nicknames to make them distinct on the page. It was also the first book I’d written in a while with one point of view.
Q5: What has been the most rewarding aspect of having written this book?
The story unfolded the way I wanted it to in my head. That doesn’t always happen.
Thank you for joining us today, Catherine. Congrats on the upcoming release of your newest title!
