Interview with Bonnie Traymore, Author of Little Loose Ends

02 Nov 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Little Loose Ends?

It’s a stand-alone sequel to Killer Motives but it’s a bit different. The first book was a whodunnit. This one is a true thriller. The main character, Victoria, needed to confront something from her past, a traumatic event that’s unfortunately way too common. I also wanted to explore the fine line between justice and revenge, and how far would someone go to protect their family.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Little Loose Ends, what would they be?

Where Have All the Cowboys Gone was running through my head when Victoria met the hot detective in Arizona!

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Mystery/thriller is my favorite, so yes, but I also read other genres, such as romance or historical fiction.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

I’m reading Karen Slaughter’s new book now, Girl Forgotten. It’s great so far!

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The climax with the twist for sure was the most to write. I wrote it early on, but I revised it until the last possible minute.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I like to get up early (3 a.m. or so) and write in the dark when everyone’s sleeping. It’s my only time. I teach full time, so I’m too tired after work.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Carpe diem!

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Be careful who you mess with, especially a mom protecting her child.
