Goodreads asked Chris Patchell:

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

Chris Patchell The original story idea was about a woman who discovered an image on her husband’s computer – an image so disturbing, she couldn’t ignore it. So, a few days later she goes digging around on his computer and realizes he has a whole secret life. And now that she knows about it, she can’t look away. But that felt a little cliché, so I turned the story idea on its head. What if the wife has a secret life? What if her husband finds out about it? And what if her husband is a cop? That’s how Jill Shannon was born, and DEADLY LIES is her story.
