What book is on your nightstand?
Twilight at Mac's Place by Ross Thomas. After his name came up during an interview I did, I decided to go back and reread all the Ross Thomas on my shelf.
When you're in the middle of writing, does it interfere with your voice if you read another mystery writer's work?
No, because I might come across a story that I feel is better than my own, and I can learn from it and use the experience.
