Sometimes you get an idea for a story but you just can’t figure out how to execute it. The underlying idea in this women’s fiction/crime story has haunted me for years, but I only recently figured out whose story it was to tell. I hope you enjoy it.
Esme Blaylock, missing her deployed husband, wants to be curled up in her warm home with her baby daughter on Christmas Eve. Instead she’s at an upstate New York prison, assigned to interview Jennifer Duschanes, who poisoned her own children one year ago.
Jennifer sees a kindred soul in new mother Esme, and for the first time, reveals why she committed her heinous crime.
The truth will change Esme forever.
