Thanks to Kristopher Zgorski and Shawn Reilly Simmons for inviting me to join episode two of We Are What We Read, a new video series in which crime writers discuss books that have influenced them or inspired them or are favorites for other reasons. The series was sparked by Kris’s being named the recipient of next year’s Amelia Award from Malice Domestic—a great honor!—and we’re all winners in the meantime, thanks to Kris’s decision to serve our community of readers (and writers!) in a fresh way.
Guests on episode two also included Ellen Bryon, Alexia Gordon, Dru Ann Love, Rob Osler, Leigh Perry/Toni L.P. Kelner, Lori Rader-Day, and Raquel V. Reyes.
(Shhh! And spoiler alert: My pick was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time by Mark Haddon.)
