Hi Josh,
No, I don't outline, I start with a premise and the characters take over from there. I start with a premise that can go in a lot of different directions and keep them all open as possibles till the end. Fortunately it seems to have worked with The Couple Next Door. I hope it works with the next one!(less)

“Her thoughts speed up and become less rational; her mind makes fantastic leaps. It's not that things don't make sense to her when she's like this — sometimes they make 'more' sense. They make sense the way dreams do. It's only when the dream is over that you see how odd it all was, how it actually didn't make sense at all.”
Shari Lapena, The Couple Next Door

“The wife is always the last to know, right?”
Shari Lapena, The Couple Next Door

“...nobody makes that much money without taking advantage of somebody. It's much easier to make money if you don't care who you hurt. If you have scruples, it's much harder to get rich.”
Shari Lapena, The Couple Next Door
