Q & A with Olivia Flaggert, Author of Serial Cheaters, Expected Publication Date: July 13th, 2021
What inspired you to write this book? I honestly did not plan to write a novel this year; it was a very spur-of-the-moment decision, but when I first thought of the general idea for this book, I knew I had to write it. I wouldn’t say there was any one thing that inspired me to write the book. I’ve always enjoyed books with serial killers. Psychology and human behavior have always fascinated me.
For this novel, I researched narcissism extensively. Much of that research came from watching Dr. Ramani’s YouTube videos, which I highly recommend if you’re interested in learning more about this topic. Her videos helped me understand how every psychopath is narcissistic, but not every narcissistic is a psychopath. Between that and my longtime interest in the psychology behind serial killers, I thought it would be fun to incorporate these traits into fictional characters.
So, I would say, that overall speaking, my general interest in psychology, particularly narcissism and the psychology of serial killers, inspired me to write this book.
What was the most challenging part of writing this book? I would say the different characters. I wrote from multiple POVs for this novel, which I enjoy doing, but some of the characters’ way of thinking is so unlike my natural way of thinking. I really had to step outside of myself to think and write like the character would sound.
What other books have inspired you? Oh gosh, there have been so many. I would say that certain authors, especially Stephen King and Gillian Flynn, have inspired me. I love their writing styles. But as far as books, I love Kaira Rouda’s novels; she writes such entertaining books with narcissistic characters. I always have a fun time when I read her books; they entertain me so much. When I wrote this novel, I tried to keep it thrilling and entertaining at the same time. I’m a huge fan of when authors incorporate humor into a thriller. Finlay Donovan is Killing It is the last book I read where I was literally laughing out loud. I love when a thriller book can make me laugh, too. As long as it’s thrilling at the same time, I love that.
What can readers hope to learn from this book? A central theme of Serial Cheaters is trust, and I think this book can help readers learn more about how looks can be very deceiving.
