Jill Shannon

Author 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.

"Sometimes, you just can't see crazy ... even when it's staring you in the face."
