Suddenly, these people I have lived with are gone. Crime Writer 3 Michael Connelly What inspires you? Reading the Harry Bosch novels in the correct order was how I discovered the trick of giving just enough private life detail to make the reader want to know more, but holding back so that things could be revisited two or three books down the line.
SD Q4: You are a writing competition judge for Writers forum. What makes a book really stand out from the rest when you are judging and would you ever score a poorly constructed grammatical piece over a well punctuated and set out piece due to an exceptionally good storyline, or must the two work in harmony and why?
To make a piece of work stand out it needs to have originality.
I see so many entries each month on similar themes that I can pretty much tell the ending after the first couple of paragraphs. But sometimes a story arrives on a well-worn theme, but told in such a unique way that the author takes me by surprise. You know the old saw about there only being seven plots in the storytelling world? SD Q5: Given that you have a very dark side to your writing, you may not be easily scared. So, I am going to ask you to be brutally honest and tell us what is the scariest predicament you could possibly find yourself in, what would make it so and given that I am an evil interviewer, put yourself within that environment and tell me how you will overcome your fears?
FDP A5: Scariest predicament? Living with a psychopath Why? He was totally unstable and terrified me physically, mentally and emotionally How will you overcome your fears? After getting away with the help of a friend, undergoing years of therapy and then using the experience in my work. So, I am going to have to restrict your trips to those of major unsolved crime scenes.
To which three major unsolved crime scenes would you travel to, in what years and where did they take place. What new light do you think you could find out using the same technology of the day in which they took place and that others have missed , and what would you bring back as a souvenir from your rather dark travels? None, but as a mother, I know I would never rest until I knew what had happened.
Souvenir: Madeline — bring her back and keep her safe. Souvenir: One of the lead pipes. Use modern forensic techniques on the letters sent to the police and media Souvenir: One or all of the letters. Do you consider that book to be timeless and still worth the investment for new writers entering the trade today or, given the overwhelming hunger for e-books, will there be an updated version that will cater to the e-publishing market more specifically. Given your answer and without ruining any prospect for a follow up book, what do you think are a few of the major differences that have taken place within the last four years?
FDP A7: I would say that most of the contents are timeless, in that it is aimed at writers wanting to get into print, but not having a clue how to do so. I think the ease with which writers can now self-publish is both a blessing and a curse. For those who take the time and care to ensure their work is error free and well edited, self-publishing is an absolute boon. They can now build a readership without having to jump through the hoops of a restrictive publishing industry.
However, far too many write a first draft, stick a cover of sorts on it and publish.
The result is that self-publishing as a whole has been tarnished. SD Q8: You have spent a long time travelling across the world. Work and commitments aside, where would you firstly be most comfortable living from across the globe and secondly most uncomfortable and why? The Perils of Pauline, ep. Norske Talenter ep.
