Crampton-Brophy has since made her now-famous essay “How To Murder Your Husband” private. It was published on the See Jane Publish blog and reportedly included sections on motives and possible weapons.
In 2012, Crampton-Brophy told the Romancing the Genres blog what attracted her to romantic suspense stories.
