A novel is such a major undertaking; there’s the writing of it, of course, then you’re spending months and months revising, polishing, and then promoting it. How did you know this was the book you wanted to spend the next couple of years on?

I only spend a few weeks writing a novel.

Were there any particular books, movies, or songs that were knocking around in your head while you were writing this one?

Maybe the Twilight Zone, but that’s about it.
