A writer-friend asked me that horrible question, “What’s your new book about?” I told her WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER is a thriller. And it’s a comedy. It’s about survival against all odds. And it’s about learning to be a parent. She started to make that humming sound that meant she wanted to tell me I’d lost my mind.
…Okay, she was snoring.
In a panic, I told her WHAT DOESN’T KILL HER is a mash-up between the National Lampoons Vacation movies and The
Fugitive. That got her attention.
Because anyone who’s been a parent or taken care of a child will tell you—no matter how dangerous or difficult the circumstances, a seven-year-old can’t be quiet, they can’t sit still, and they always gotta go potty.
Let’s say you’re Kellen Adams. You take a security job. You’re double-crossed. You find yourself in the wilderness, on the run, unprepared, your enemies unknown. Then, oh no, you discover your new seven-year-old daughter has tagged along to bond. What are you going to do? The consequences of failure would break you. And Kellen Adams does not break.
What doesn’t kill her…had better start running.
