Bookreporter Talks To

Feb 15, 2022

Bonnie Kistler talks to Carol Fitzgerald about her newest psychological thriller, The Cage, which is a Bookreporter Bets On selection.

In the novel, two colleagues from a fashion conglomerate enter an elevator together, but only one survives the trip to the lobby. What happened behind those closed doors -- and why -- forms the backbone for the rest of the book.

Bonnie shares her process for writing thrillers, noting that she spends time making promises in the beginning so that the rest of the story works like dominoes. Bonnie and Carol talked about their feelings of elevators; something that Bonnie also wrote a piece about elevators on her website; which you can read in the link below.
