Yes, it was very loosely based on a real-life crematory scandal we had in Georgia. Without dropping any spoilers, I’ll just say I wrote a lot of fiction around the headlines and made it slightly more grisly, but not much. The GBI agents who first arrived at the real scene and found 333 uncremated bodies at Tri-State Crematory in NW Georgia will never forget it. I was able to get the scene photos those agents took, hundreds of them. It was like a Halloween movie. Just terrible. I also visited the property.
Thanks for reading and thanks for the question!(less)

“You learn to forgive (the South) for its narrow mind and growing pains because it has a huge heart. You forgive the stifling summers because the spring is lush and pastel sprinkled, because winter is merciful and brief, because corn bread and sweet tea and fried chicken are every bit as vital to a Sunday as getting dressed up for church, and because any southerner worth their salt says please and thank you. It's soft air and summer vines, pine woods and fat homegrown tomatoes. It's pulling the fruit right off a peach tree and letting the juice run down your chin. It's a closeted and profound appreciation for our neighbors in Alabama who bear the brunt of the Bubba jokes. The South gets in your blood and nose and skin bone-deep. I am less a part of the South than it is part of me. It's a romantic notion, being overcome by geography. But we are all a little starry-eyed down here. We're Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara and Rosa Parks all at once.”
Amanda Kyle Williams

“Sometimes you only get one chance at something. Sometimes that's a good thing too. When that door slams shut on the thing you couldn't live without, what happens next is when the read education begins. You have to figure out how to make some peace with it all, how to have an interior life you can live with. Digging down deep is really never a bad thing in the end, but it will flat-out kick your ass while it's happening.”
Amanda Kyle Williams, The Stranger You Seek

“Damn fool," Mother whispered, and covered her face with her hands. "It's not enough that he spells out Leon on the roof every year in Christmas lights. Now this!"
My father was dyslexic but would not admit it.”
Amanda Kyle Williams, The Stranger You Seek
