It’s no secret that I’m a crime television junkie (although books, magazines, and newspaper articles about all things sinister work for me too). When I’m looking for storytelling inspiration, I grab a pen and paper and plunk myself in front of the TV. At some point last fall, I searched through Netflix’s offerings and found a docuseries on the mafia. I’m almost certain I watched the entire six hours in one sitting. Simply put, I was fascinated by the violence and complexities of La Cosa Nostra (the five mafia families of New York) and their ability to evade law enforcement for decades. By the time I finished the last episode, I had dozens of pages of notes and knew my next novel had to involve a mafia-type storyline.
I was certain I didn’t want to write a typical gangland novel, so I took the plot in a different direction, bringing the mob into Reed and Bella’s lives in a not-so-ordinary way. Reed will go to any lengths to right past wrongs, and Bella will be forced to deal with the aftermath. I hope you’ll enjoy the twists and turns in Deceiving Bella. I had so much fun sitting down to share their adventure every single day.
