Friends on Both Sides of the Law
Posted by Literary Titan
Blown Away follows a homicide detective tasked with solving a murder at his friends hotel when things quickly go awry. What were some sources that influenced this thrilling crime story?
Blown Away is part of a multi-author book series. The series was to take place in Las Vegas and the theme was to include casinos and/or crime/organized crime and four male friends. Each book was to focus on one friend and incorporate one or more of the other friends from the series.
Zack is a compelling character that I enjoyed watching develop as the novel progressed. What were some themes that were important to capture in his character?
One of the character suggestions for the series was someone in law enforcement. I chose a police detective with some personal baggage, a strong sense of justice and friends on both sides of the law.
What were some challenges you set for yourself as a writer with this book?
The action scenes were a challenge. I wanted it to be fast-paced and for the action to flow effectively. I had to do research on weapons and security systems to ensure those scenes were realistic.
This is book two in The Crimes of Passion Series. What can readers expect in book three?
True Lies, Book 3 by Stephanie Nicole has been released.
I plan on writing another book in the series in 2021. The main character will be Sasha Petrov. Even before finishing Blown Away, I knew I wanted to write Sasha’s story.
