Goodreads asked Jason Parent:

Where did you get the idea for your most recent book?

Jason Parent Seeing Evil is actually a conglomerate of ideas. I had started to write a Columbine-type drama along time ago, and what happened in Connecticut re-vitalized the issue in the media. That's a small part of the novel. Growing up, one of my favorite novels (and movies) was The Dead Zone. It's influence can be seen here. Then there's me, my voice, the story I want to tell. I hope Seeing Evil is something reader's will find something in beyond a fast-paced thriller, something they can relate to but also a story they will enjoy). I suppose only time will tell.
