Don Winslow – interview

During Don Winslow’s most recent appearance at the Poisoned Pen, owner Barbara Peters read from several press releases from Winslow’s past novels. What was most striking was that each release was near identical, describing Winslow’s then current novel as his…

Peter Farris – Interview

  I was fortunate enough to meet Peter Farris at last year’s Bouchercon in St. Louis. We had been goofing around on Twitter and various social media platforms over the past year, so we’d “known” each other for a while.…

In the four years I’ve been cornering novelists and shoving a camera in their faces at the Poisoned Pen, I’ve interviewed Joe R. Lansdale more than any other writer, and with good reason. Lansdale, along with being a brilliant novelist,…

Reed Farrel Coleman – interview

There’s few P.I.’s that have been put through the emotional ringer more than Moe Prager (Alright, Ken Bruen’s Jack Taylor has taken more than his fair share of bumps) and just when you think there’s nothing else Prager’s creator, Reed…

Benjamin Whitmer – interview

Since the death of Larry Brown there have been at least a dozen novelists touted as the heir to Brown’s gritty throne. Needless to say, there have been few who’ve actually lived up to the promise. However, with Benjamin Whitmer’s…

John Rector – video interview

There have been few debut novels that I’ve been impressed with more than The Cold Kiss by John Rector. The story of Nate, his pregnant girlfriend Sara and a mortally wounded hitchhiker named Syl White is a tightly plotted thriller…
