I always intended to revisit Maggie. Back when I wrote Episode One and John was having that conversation with his wife, I knew that Maggie’s day was a traumatic one (unfortunately for her, it gets worse).
John is an ordinary man. I’m not talking morality tale here, I’m talking about a man who gets up every day and goes to work to provide for his family. I’m talking about a man who met the love of his life, married her and started a family with her. I’m talking about a man who, at his core, is content with his career, has built himself a home and a life, and is happy.
It’s funny where inspiration strikes. I remember so clearly where the idea for my short story series The Last Day came from.
