When you published OVERLOOK, were you already working on ESCAPE PLAN?
Not at all. When Overlook was published in 2013, I moved forward with another novel; however, Stacia and Kitty wouldn't stay inside the pages of the first book. The inspiration for Escape Plan came to me while I was taking a shower one afternoon while I was scrubbing the grout in my shower. Perhaps it was the fumes from cleaner, but I imagined Stacia sitting on the vanity flicking her cigarette into my husband's sink. She turned to me and said, "If I hadn't written that editorial, I never would have known that Bitsy wore a fall." I couldn't let a statement like that go. I ended up staying up far too late that night outlining what would become Escape Plan. In the end, I was happy to spend another year in Kitty and Stacia's world.
