A Lobotomy Lesson & How I Met My Historical Boyfriend

I researched for an entire year before writing a word of A MADNESS SO DISCREET. There was so much I needed to learn – how insane asylums were run in the late 19th century, how criminal profiling operated at the same time (both the accuracy and the inaccuracies), not to mention the dress, food, transportation, and speech patterns of the time. It was kind of exhausting.

Luckily for me, a lot of the research was also wildly interesting – that is, if you’re a sick twist like me. I already made a vlog about different kinds of treatment that I learned about while writing MADNESS. Today I’m focusing on one in particular, and how researching it brought me to the realization that my historical boyfriend is someone I wasn’t expecting.
