Geri and James return in their most explosive adventure to date.

When next door neighbour, Lydia, gives birth to her second healthy baby boy, James and Geri pray their friend can finally be happy and at peace. But, little do they know Lydia’s troubles are far from over.

Meanwhile, Geri is researching several historic, unsolved murders for James’ new book. She discovers one of the prime suspects now resides in Spring Pines Retirement Village, the scene of not one, but two recent killings.

Author Interview

What would you say is a typical day in the life of Netta Newbound and how do you find time to write?

Netta:  My working day begins around 8am. I check emails and fb messages before getting stuck in. It’s not always writing, I also do a lot of editing formatting and proofreading for a number of my author friends. After dinner, I continue working in front of the TV until bed time. My husband says I’m obsessed.

What types of scenes do you find the most difficult to write and why?

Netta:  Romantic scenes are the hardest for me – I’d rather my characters kill each other than kiss each other, lol.

What do you feel are the unique challenges to writing Psychological Thrillers?

Netta:  To amp up the tension is difficult, unlike action thrillers, psychological thrillers are generally slower paced but require the same if not more tension.

You’ve mentioned various times in interviews and on your website that Stephen King is one of your inspirations.  I love Stephen King too!  What about his writing and/or stories appeals most to you and has it impacted how you approach your writing?

Netta:  One of my all time favourite books is Pet Sematary it affected me for years after reading it. I’d love to evoke those kinds of feelings in a reader.

If you could describe this book in 3 words what would it be?

Netta:  Nail biting thriller.

Can we expect to see more of Geri and James?

Netta:  I hope so. I’ll listen to my readers and if they want more then who am I to argue? 🙂
