“I loved writing crime fiction since I was a kid,” Marcia told E! News during an interview. “I was making up crime stories and murder stories when I was 5 years old, so there’s a way in which it’s kind of full circle.”
Despite their obvious similarities, Marcia insists the character of Maya isn’t her. “She went off to a horse farm, I can’t say I’m not jealous of that, but she went off to a horse farm and she really gave everything up,” the mother-of-two explained.
“She walked away from it and came back with a lot of ambivalence. It’s a whole different set of circumstances. So, no, this is an entirely fictional character that actually gives me more freedom because it isn’t me.”
