I am often asked where an idea for a book comes from.
Here is the story behind Am I the Killer?
The seed for the story came from watching a documentary called Crash Reel (HBO). It was an inside look at the competition to win a spot on the US Olympic Snowboarding team.
Two young men were followed, one being Shaun White, doing all kinds of impossible jumps and tricks. The other boy fell and hit his head, suffering a TBI (traumatic brain injury).
The film morphed into his struggle to regain physical and mental capacities as well as the family drama. It was very emotional and I cried.
The damage suffered was real and tragic but unnoticeable.
The fact it was a ‘hidden’ injury intrigued me and I wondered what would happen if someone with a TBI was charged with murder.
That’s the truth, the absolute truth….
