Yes, a failed Canadian ski company. Until then, I never sewriously thought about writing. Just something that was on my bucket list. Maybe one novel. Now I've done 14 (including  one with patterson.) The first novel I wrote, HYDRA, has still never made it to print.


Was being a writer something you ever saw yourself doing when you were younger?

 

Do you have any early books that haven't been published yet?

Do you have any early books besides HYDRA that haven't been published yet?

I need to check out these books too. They sound quite engrossing and pageturners.

And that may be the reason I prefer vintage mysteries over thrillers, not sure I want that much reality when I'm trying to relax.  :-)

I can make a case that thrillers are the most relelvent form of fiction being written today, as the subjects and crises described in them truly reflect the issues and the conflicts facing the world today. Just sayin....

Good point! For some reason, thrillers somtimes relax me. I guess because the solution is assured.
