Over at Peace, Love, Teen Fiction, I answer some questions about I Hunt Killers. Here’s a sample:
Where do you come up with the names of your serial killers?
BL: Good question! I just started riffing one day, throwing out ideas. I kept the ones that seemed either really eerie or slightly silly. If you think about it, a name like “Son of Sam” is sort of silly, until you know the context. I wanted some of my names to be similar. “Hand-in-Glove” (one of Billy’s aliases) is kind of absurd…until you know it’s the name of a serial killer.
