Can you talk a little about your research? Beyond the newspaper accounts and court transcripts, how did interviews help you tell the story?
Thank you so much for coming and sharing about your books. My question is about the story of this case. I am just wondering if we know the motive of the murderer.
When you wrote this book do you start writing beginning to end or start at the ending and write back to the beginning?
will ask these next
In all your books (I have read them all!) , you have a fabulous way of just walking the reader into the book…how much time do you spend on the opening of the book? How do you decide how to “open” the story?
How did you go about getting in contact with the people you interviewed?
Was there any piece of information that you were not able to track down? Any mysteries left unsolved?
Do you read a lot of true crime? Who are some of your favorites?
What's the writing process like for you? Do you write every day? Do you get caught up in the story?
Can you tell us a little about the book on lighthouses you're working on?
What advice would you give to aspiring writers?
What advice do you have for someone who is changing genres?
Thank you very much for coming!
Thank you! It was enlightening and delightful!
