Diane Piron-Gelman currently serves as Board President of LIM, and recently had the opportunity to talk to LIM 2015 Featured Author Anne Perry. Their interview follows.
It was in a quote by renowned film critic Pauline Kael, who said, in 1968: "The words 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' which I saw on an Italian movie poster, are perhaps the briefest statement imaginable of the basic appeal of movies."
The New York Times bestselling author of nine books for adults and five for teenagers, Jacquelyn Mitchard is now editor of an imprint she helped to create, Merit Press. Merit Press is actively acquiring realistic, contemporary Young Adult fiction - suspenseful, mysterious, some-times with historical subjects or a twist of magical realism. Merit Press has twice been featured in Publishers Weekly as an up-and-coming new publisher, under the aegis of the media giant F&W Media. Mitchard, who comes from Chicago, now lives on Cape Cod with her family. Email her at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 608-576-5568, and visit her website, www.jacquelynmitchard.com
Saul Bellow said a writer is a reader moved to emulation.
I am a reader moved to emulation. I am a moviegoer moved to make story.
I am a crime, mystery, detective, noir novelist inspired by more writers and filmmakers than I can begin to catalog, but here are three contemporary crime writers that first moved me to emulation, and continue to inspire me.
