I’d been writing western historical romances and Silhouette Romantic Suspense novels for several years, and I loved it. But I’d always had a hankering to write a longer, darker suspense story. I’m a sucker for a good, scary novel. The character Lindsay O’Neil, the heroine in I’m Watching You, kept popping up and prodding me to tell her story. Even though I was on deadline, I decided to carve time from my day and work on Lindsay’s story. I’d work on the contracted novel by day and plot I’m Watching You by night. This must have taken eight or nine months. When I finally had the first three chapters and a synopsis, I sent it off to my agent. She was able to sell it to Kensington within a couple of weeks.
