I’m starting a new feature here at Murder She Writes — Writer Wednesday. It’ll be either an original writing article by yours truly, a friend, or a compilation of cool interviews or writing advice from writers I like or admire. I’m hoping the feature will be interesting for readers AND writers!
To start it off, here are a couple of interviews posted this week of crime writers that I really enjoyed, and I hope you like them too.I have long enjoyed reading Linda Fairstein, ever since her first book FINAL JEOPARDY. Not only is she talented, but she has the background and experience to make her protagonist an interesting and real person. Over at Jungle Red Writers, another of my favorite people, Hank Phillipi Ryan, interviews Linda about her upcoming book TERMINAL CITY. I loved this interview because I learned more about Linda and how she writes, as well as historical information about her novels. Definitely an article that readers AND writers will enjoy!
One of the things I do in the series is center each book in a world that explores some aspect of New York City history. They are places we’ve all been to or seen in the movies, but most have dark undersides. There really was a murder of a young musician between acts at Lincoln Center, while 4,000 people sat in their seats (DEATH DANCE), and while Central Park is the most glorious place on this island, my unit prosecuted more than fifty crimes – some of them homicides – during my tenure (DEATH ANGEL). ~ Linda Fairstein
