CRIMINAL-E INTERVIEW!

CRIMINAL-E INTERVIEW!

ALLAN GUTHERIE HAS POSTED HIS RECENT INTERVIEW WITH ME ON HIS CRIMINAL-E BLOG . . .

Croaker: Kill Me Again by Paul Bishop

A thirty-five year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department, Paul has twice been honored as Detective of the Year. As well as numerous novels, he has also written scripts for episodic television and feature films. As a nationally recognized interrogator, he appears regularly on the hit ABC reality series Take The Money And Run . . .

Can you sum up your book in no more than 25 words?

L.A.P.D. detective Fey Croaker and her crew get put through the ringer when a current murder victim appears to have also been murdered ten years earlier.

Who designed your cover?

Keith Birdsong designed the covers for all my e-books. I lucked into finding Keith through another writer friend. He is a professional illustrator working for many Legacy publishers, so it was a big break for me to get him to work on my covers – and I’m delighted with them.

How important is a book's central character?

A strong central character can make up for a lot of other flaws in a novel. For me, a central character has to have some redeeming feature, something to make me like the character and spend time in their company. If a central character is too whiney, too crass, too stupid, or simply not fleshed out, I toss the book aside.
