Creating My First Serial Killer

This is my first book where I had to get into the mind of a serial killer.  I did my research trying to create a perfect killer. The killer’s thought process, the overwhelming need to do these awful acts, the pleasure the killer gets from the act and countless other things that went into creating this character.  I don’t know how many hours I spent reading research material, but it was all worth it.

To me, the most frightening killer is the one who doesn’t look like or act like what you think a killer would. I didn’t want to make my character over the top crazy. I wanted the readers as they read this book to forget what a monster this character is then be jolted back when the character committed a heinous act. In other words, to humanize the killer. I found myself getting exhausted after a writing session trying to stay in the head of my killer and try to make all the pieces of the story fall into place.  This was by far the hardest book for me to write. It really stretched my writing muscles. Yet, I’m glad I took this challenge on. I think my readers will enjoy this story, and be completely freaked out by this killer I have created. When a suspense story has a really good bad guy that is what makes it a good read. I really hope I have accomplished this with my story.
