Lisa Gardner has an awfully sweet smile for someone who spends her days creating gruesome crimes for our reading pleasure.  It just goes to show you – you can’t judge a book by it’s cover.  I met with Lisa last week when she was visiting Eagle Eye Bookshop in Decatur, GA on tour for her new book LOVE YOU MORE.  Lisa’s schedule was tight and they were nice enough to let me use some space to do our interview.

Interviewing mystery and suspense author is always a challenge because I never want to give away the plot and spoil the book for you – so as much as LOVE YOU MORE is a page turning thriller – Lisa and I spent most of our time talking about the themes and relationships that drive the book, as well as her research trip to the Body Farm – and some sneak peeks into what she (and her characters) are up to next!

It was great to meet Lisa and get the chance to dig into that wicked brain of hers, so I hope you enjoy the interview! And don’t forget to check out the rest of the podcast series on iTunes!
