A clip from the below interview about why I write from experience.
David Baldacci, Daniel Stashower and I were invited by the producers of Sirius XM’s Book Channel to do the first “Author Cafe,” several hours of authors interviewing each other about their own work. It subsequently became the most popular and often listened to program of the Book Channel.
Here we are with co-producers, Kim Alexander and Maggie Linton, enthusiastically discussing our work and the fun we three have had researching and writing our books.
A few of the topics discussed… Is the blank page your friend or foe? What is your approach to writing? How do you work with historical characters? How do you write a sequel to a successful novel? What inspired you to write?
How do you develop your characters? How does history inform your novels? What is your research process like? How do you integrate research into your novels?
More stories about strange, dangerous and wonderful research experiences. What’s coming up next for these great authors?
