The horrifying news about Jemma Lilley, originally from Lincolnshire, UK, killing autistic boy, Aaron Pajich, at her home in Perth because she wanted to feel euphoric, appalls me.
I’m beginning to worry what effect books like my dark thriller ‘Your Last Breath’ have on people like her, and what we authors can do to discourage them from acting out their fantasies. We can make the perpetrator suffer in our stories, but sometimes we have to let them get away. Are other crime/thriller/murder writers concerned about this?
I’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR VIEWS.
