Question: How was it like writing about an old love interest of Patrick’s?
A: Before I started working on Every Deadly Kiss, I never thought much about Patrick’s prior relationships before he met Christie. Getting to know Sharyn while I wrote the book was fascinating to me, especially her background as a child star in Hollywood. I’ve often wondered what it’s like for children who star in thrillers or horror movies—how it affects them later on in life. And meeting Sharyn, I finally found out.
