Who or What inspired you to write this book?
I don’t drive. I was hit by a car (hit and run) when I was 12 scouting a paper route, since then I’ve had nightmares of getting into car accidents in and out of the car. I thought if I wrote about car accidents it would help me to get over it, but it’s different when you put it on the page and you are on the road.

I write this book in two different perspectives and I rotate using their name at the top of each section. This way you see from the victim’s and murderer’s points of view.
