Author Interview with REBECCA CANTRELL
You also write award-nominated screenplays. Tell us about that.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced as a writer?
What is the title of your most recently published book? Briefly tell us what it’s about and let us know where we can buy it.
In June 2010 the sequel, A NIGHT OF LONG KNIVES appears in hardcover. After being zeppelin jacked back into Germany, Hannah Vogel must solve one murder among a thousand to find her son in 1934 Berlin.
I also have a short story in the anthology FIRST THRILLS, also in June (busy month, June). All of my books will be available at bookstores everywhere and online.
What are you working on now and when/where do you expect it to be available?
I’m working on the third Hannah Vogel novel. It is called A GAME OF LIES. In this one, Hannah Vogel investigates her mentor’s murder and unravels a Nazi conspiracy during the 1936 Olympic games in Berlin. It’s set to come out in June 2011 to bookstores everywhere.
Writers, especially new writers, are always looking for tips and helpful information. What is the single most important “tip” you can give to a new writer?
I used to say persistence, which is very, very important, but now I’m moving toward: have fun! Forget the myth of the tortured artist and love, love, love what you do.
Are you a member of any writer’s organizations? Why? Why not?
I’m a member of The Author’s Guild, Mystery Writers of America, Sisters in Crime, and International Thriller Writers.
Do you have any upcoming book signings or appearances? If so, give us all the details.
I don’t have anything booked yet, but I will be touring in California and New York this summer. I’ll post the details on my web site at http://rebeccacantrell.com/events/
FUN QUESTION: Television or radio, and why?
Radio. My TV isn’t hooked up to an antenna or cable, so I only watch movies. These days I mostly listen to music and love Pandora.
