If you want to know where I got some of the inspiration for The Burning Mind (aka Phantom Instinct), check out these interviews.
“The Burning Mind is about perception. A catastrophic shootout leaves two damaged survivors who must work together to stop a killer. Hunting him down, and coming out alive, depends on accurate perception—by the survivors, the cops, and the people the killer has in his sights. Because almost nobody believes he exists.
And things may literally not be what they seem.”
And over on Crimesquad.com, I talk about When Our Eyes Deceive Us.
Years ago, I stepped into a lift and came face to face with an old boyfriend. The door closed and an awkward moment worsened—he ignored me.
