Jill Shannonabout this book: The best part about writing a book is the research. In my book, Image of Deceit, I was able to spend time with a local SD Detective, a real behind the scene experience. I also volunteered for a polygraph examiner's class and found out I'm a terrible liar! Time spent on research helps my characters to become real. At home,I speak about people in the book as if they are friends and acquaintances I've known for a long time. Lucky for me, my husband feeds into it and talks about habits and neurosis of different characters in my books.
I spent four years working on Image of Deceit. That seems like an incredibly long time, but there were long breaks when I walked away from it, fed up with bland development. Little did I know that's exactly what I needed to do! With each fresh start I could see the problems, fix them, and move on. I also sat on the finished book for quite a few months, trying to get the title just right. Some authors know the title way in advance. I can only wish that worked for me.
We've all met people who have a projected image that does not match the inner person. This is very true with the main characters in my book.
