If I could have private conversations with all the authors of the books I’ve read, I would most certainly pepper them with questions. That happy day may never happen, but I’ve been lucky enough to have a few author interviews. To celebrate three years of blogging and my 600th post, here’s a look back at these conversations. Click on the author names to read the interviews and on the book titles to read my reviews.
Posted December 28, 2013: Heather Walsh, author of Dented Cans and The Drake Equation.
Posted December 31, 2013: Dianne Salerni, author of We Hear the Dead, The Caged Graves, The Eighth Day, The Inquisitor’s Mark and Morrigan’s Curse.
Posted February 26, 2014: Susanna Daniel, author of Stiltsville and Sea Creatures.
Susanna says that “by far the experience that has had the broadest, deepest impact on my writing is my membership in families — as a daughter, sister, mother, wife — and the close attention I pay to domestic dynamics.”
Posted April 8, 2014: Tracy Ewens, author of Catalina Kiss, Premiere, Candidate, Taste, Reserved, Stirred and Vacancy.
Posted May 21, 2014: Bill Dedman, co-author of Empty Mansions.
Bill Dedman is a Pulitzer Prize-winning American journalist and an investigative reporter for Newsday. Check out this fascinating story about the reclusive millionaire heiress, Huguette Clark, who chose to spend the last twenty years of her life in a NYC hospital. (Photo of Clark: nbcnews.com)
Posted June 18, 2014: Kristina McMorris, author of Letters from Home, Bridge of Scarlet Leaves, The Pieces We Keep and The Edge of Lost.
In this interview, Kristina says that “as a former actress and movie buff, I think I’ve always had a passion for storytelling.” I really enjoyed The Pieces We Keep when we read it for my book club. I’m getting ready to read Bridge of Scarlet Leaves.
Posted October 27, 2014: Follow-up with Tracy Ewens.
Tracy has been very busy writing her romance novels. I’m a little behind on her books, but Reserved is coming up soon on my reading list!
Posted on October 12, 2015: Lawrence H. Levy, author of Second Street Station and Brooklyn on Fire.
Levy is a Writers Guild award-winner and a two-time Emmy nominee. He has written for many hit shows, including Seinfeld and Family Ties. Now he writes great historical mysteries about Mary Handley, Brooklyn’s first female detective. I’m currently reading Brooklyn on Fire for my Summer Reading Challenge.
