Author News & Interviews

Author Talk: Annie Hogsett, author of Too Lucky to Live: A Somebody's Bound to Wind Up Dead Mystery

May 11, 2017

Annie Hogsett enjoyed a long career as an advertising copywriter, and now is ready to embark on a new journey as a published author. Her debut novel, TOO LUCKY TO LIVE, introduces readers to Allie Harper, a lonely and broke divorce-survivor who gets much more than she bargained for when she meets and falls in love with Thomas Bennington III, a blind man who has just bought a MondoMegaJackpot ticket. In this interview, Hogsett talks about the moment when she realized she wanted to write books for a living, the mystery writer whose work she admires the most, and why she will want to continue hanging out with Allie for many more books to come.

Author Talk: Mark Sullivan, author of Beneath a Scarlet Sky

May 3, 2017

BENEATH A SCARLET SKY, Mark Sullivan’s highly anticipated new novel, is based on the true story of Pino Lella, who, during World War II, risked his life guiding Jews across the Alps into Switzerland, became a spy inside the German High Command, and fell in love with a woman who would haunt him for the rest of his life. In this interview, Sullivan talks about the emotional conversations he had with Pino, who ultimately was forced to choose between life and love; why historians have taken to calling Italy “The Forgotten Front”; the lessons that James Patterson (with whom he co-authors the Private series) has taught him about writing fiction; and how a chance encounter at a dinner party and his eventual friendship with Pino literally saved his life.

May 3, 2017

Graeme Simsion follows up his international bestsellers THE ROSIE PROJECT and THE ROSIE EFFECT with THE BEST OF ADAM SHARP, in which a piano-playing IT consultant must choose between his current partner and his lost love. In this interview conducted by Bookreporter.com’s Amy Haddock, Simsion discusses the role of music in the novel (and reveals the two songs he thinks would serve as the perfect soundtrack for the past and present storylines), the difficulties of writing female protagonists in a love story, how the title “The Best of Adam Sharp” came about, and the joint novel he’s working on with his wife.

Author Talk: Lisa Unger, author of The Red Hunter

Apr 28, 2017

Lisa Unger is the New York Times and internationally bestselling, award-winning author of 15 novels, including IN THE BLOOD, CRAZY LOVE YOU and INK AND BONE. Her latest stand-alone thriller, THE RED HUNTER, introduces readers to two wronged women who are on very different paths yet find themselves in the same dark place. In this interview, Unger reveals how kung-fu and kickboxing served as part of the inspiration for the book, what she admires most about each of her main characters, why there is never a “true villain” in any of her novels, and who she could see playing the roles of Zoey and Claudia in a potential film version of THE RED HUNTER.

Interview: Chevy Stevens, author of Never Let You Go

Mar 16, 2017

Chevy Stevens’ debut, STILL MISSING, won the International Thriller Writers Award for Best First Novel in 2011. She has followed up that enormous success with one gripping psychological thriller after another, including ALWAYS WATCHING and THOSE GIRLS. Stevens' latest, NEVER LET YOU GO, introduces readers to Lindsey Nash, who leaves an abusive relationship and tries to start a new life with her young daughter, Sophie --- but will learn years later that it is almost impossible to escape one’s past. In this interview, conducted by Bookreporter.com’s Rebecca Munro, Stevens reveals why this book got such a late start; describes the challenges she faced in alternating the story’s points of view between Lindsey and Sophie; explains how she ensured that Andrew, the abusive ex-husband, wouldn’t be a cliché; and offers a few tantalizing details about her next novel, her first to be set outside of Canada.
