Nietzsche, my Mom, and I
Nietzsche said: "Youth as such is something that falsifies and deceives." I've wanted to write a crime novel with a university setting for some time, and knew that Nietzsche's thought would play a role - how well he fits the undergraduate years, one of those perfect but troubling fits, like sex and regret. I also knew there'd be a labyrinth of dangerous tunnels beneath the campus, a place where the hidden natures of Nat and Grace and Izzie might be revealed. (Too much of my own college career was spent in tunnel exploration. They were pretty scary, and that was without anyone like Freedy lurking in the darkness. Are there tunnel networks under British universities?) Crying Wolf is the first book of mine in which I've had a character say something verbatim that I heard in real life. Helen Uzig's exit line at the dinner party is a piece of advice my late mother gave me when I was about Nat's age and needed to hear it (even if I didn't know it then). She also taught me most of what I know about writing - the surprise that comes three lines after Helen's exit is her kind of thing exactly. Thanks, Mom.
