While I was writing the Bishop, I was able to tour the FBI Academy in Quantico, VA. So all of the information about the inside of the academy is as accurate as I was able to be without giving any inside information away.
When I began the book, I wanted to have the entire story take place over the course of 52 hours. However, as I worked on it, I realized that this wouldn't allow me to build up the suspense I wanted to throughout the story.
While writing the climax, I abandoned a rudimentary outline that I had started and wrote it organically, solidifying in my mind the realization that outlining was not for me and would end up wasting my time.
I didn't know who the bishop would be until I was completing the final chapters of the book.
The game is on.
