Rakib_khan asked Gail Z. Martin:

Will you tell us a bit about the influences behind your novel 'Deadly Curiosities'? What made you venture into the genre of Urban Fantasy?

Gail Z. Martin Hi! I took a couple of trips to Charleston and fell in love with the city. So I started thinking about what kind of story I could tell that would connect to all that fantastic history and hauntedness. Then I began writing short stories in the Deadly Curiosities universe for anthologies, and Solaris asked me to do the novel based on one of the short stories. Aside from that, I enjoy reading Urban Fantasy, and it's fun to mix things up and do some new things!
