Little Brown Interview with Author Michael Connelly on BlogTalkRadio

I have had such a fun week! On Wednesday I was able to participate in a live interview with author Michael Connelly, hosted by the fabulous Miriam Parker from Hachette Book Group. My question is about nine minutes in, just click the play button on the above post to listen. It was a very cool experience!

On Monday I was surprised to find an email in my inbox from one of my favorite authors, Helen Hollick. She writes wonderful historical fiction and is the author of The Kingmaking Trilogy, a series about King Arthur, among other novels. I am reviewing a book written by a friend of hers, Rogues & Rebels by Jo Field. When I received Rogues & Rebels I had sent a note to Jo to let her know that it had arrived and then I added that I knew I would like it since one of my favorite authors, Helen Hollick, had written the blurb for Rogues & Rebels! Anyway, my note was forwarded to Helen and she sent me a nice email. It was such a highlight for me, it made my whole week!

I listened today even though I haven't read any of Michael Connelly's books. I've become an author junkie.

I read The Overlook over the weekend. The Overlook is the eighteenth book of Mr. Connelly's but the first one that I have ever read. I thought it was very interesting and well written, I liked it. I have no idea how I came to have a copy of the book, but I found it in one of my piles just in time to read it before the interview.

I enjoyed particpating, it was fun to hear the author's point of view and some background about his writing process.

I agree - I thought it was a great interview. I've written up a little summary and will be posting it in a day or two.

It's so exciting that you heard from Helen Hollick. One of the best part of blogging has been the contact with authors.

Thank you!!

Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
