Ah, the crazy boss. Who hasn't had one of those?
Throughout my working career I've had a few wonderful bosses; the rest have been a bag of mixed nuts. No longer confined to a cubicle—which we all know is a padded cell without a door—I started reflecting on the odd personalities I had to endure for a paycheck. It occurred to me that good bosses are all alike; every bad boss is evil in his own way.
After shuddering, I let my imagination run wild. I thought, “What if an office drone suspected her boss of being a serial killer? And what if he had a crush on her? Sure, that would suck, but what could she do?”
That was how I came up with Spitfire. Twenty-eight-year-old Tomi Reyes is a documentary filmmaker who moonlights as a receptionist to pay the bills. But shortly after she is promoted to assistant, her new boss starts exhibiting mercurial moods. When Tomi's friends are targeted by a serial killer, she suspects her boss of the grisly crimes. Unfortunately for Tomi, all of the evidence is pointing to her.
