Goodreads asked Tim L. Williams:

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

Tim L. Williams Most of the stories in my collection come from my rather dark musing about the hardscrabble nature of life in my hometown. As a writer of noir and psychological horror, I've always been fascinated by the utter banality of evil and villains who live lives that appear normal from the outside. I addressed the issue and a major influence in a short essay on Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine's blog.
