Allison here: I met J.T. Ellison first online in 2006, then in person at the first Thrillerfest in Arizona. She’d asked me to blurb her debut novel, All the Pretty Girls, and I remember sitting at a bar in Sacramento when my flight was delayed heading to the 2006 RT conference in Daytona Beach. I was completely and totally hooked and finished the book on the plane. J.T. can write. She writes what I love to read, great characters, dark and suspenseful with a hint of romance. I’ve been so lucky to earn her friendship over the years and am pleased to have J.T. as a guest here at Murder She Writes — and I hope she’ll return soon!
What do you do when faced with a life-changing decision? Do you jump off the cliff and go for it, heedless of the consequence? Do you agonize, write lists of pros and cons, worry yourself into sleepless nights until the decision is made? Or do you use entropy, edging toward the decision through the path of least resistance, not deciding, but not walking away, either?
