Author News & Interviews

Interview: Emelie Schepp, author of Marked for Life

Jun 16, 2016

International bestselling author Emelie Schepp introduces us to the enigmatic, unforgettable Jana Berzelius in MARKED FOR LIFE, the first installment of a chilling trilogy. Schepp didn’t take the traditional route to publication; instead of being deterred when her manuscript was rejected or ignored by major publishing houses, she published her work online and became one of the most popular self-published authors in Sweden. In this interview with Bookreporter.com’s Joe Hartlaub, Schepp opens up about her unique --- although increasingly less so --- path to success, why she feels inclined to explore the theme of envy between women, and what we can expect from her next.

Author Talk: Steven Rowley, author of Lily and the Octopus

Jun 9, 2016

Steven Rowley has worked as a freelance writer, newspaper columnist and screenwriter, but now, with his excellent debut in bookstores, he’s well on his way to becoming a household name. LILY AND THE OCTOPUS is an epic adventure and a fierce love story about the lengths to which one man will go to save his dog. In this interview, Rowley reveals the heartbreaking inspiration behind his first novel, why your 40s can feel like the “halftime” of your life, and how he tends to blur the lines between prose and poetry in his writing.

Author Talk: Brad Meltzer, author of The House of Secrets

Jun 9, 2016

Brad Meltzer has worn many hats: He’s a #1 New York Times bestselling author, host of two television series, and one of the only authors to ever have books on the bestseller list for nonfiction, advice, children's books and graphic novels. Now he has accomplished another first: He successfully co-wrote his latest political thriller, THE HOUSE OF SECRETS. In this interview, Meltzer discusses the relationship between George Washington and history’s most infamous traitor, Benedict Arnold (complicated), his own professional relationship with co-author Tod Goldberg (also complicated, but ultimately fruitful), and how THE HOUSE OF SECRETS is his attempt to solve one of history’s most intriguing mysteries.

Interview: Dorothea Benton Frank, author of All Summer Long

Jun 2, 2016

New York Times bestselling author Dorothea Benton Frank is back with the perfect beach read, aptly titled ALL SUMMER LONG. It follows one charming New York couple --- prominent interior designer Olivia Ritchie and her husband, Nicholas Seymour, an English professor and true southern gentleman --- as they prepare to retire to the Lowcountry and find themselves pondering the next step of their lives. In this interview, Dottie talks to The Book Report Network's Jamie Layton about her personal style, the power of love, and whether or not money truly can buy happiness.

Interview: Mary Kay Andrews, author of The Weekenders

May 19, 2016

Some people (everyone) refer to Mary Kay Andrews as the “Queen of the Summer Beach Read," while others (the Bookreporter staff) refer to her as “MKA.” Whatever you happen to call her, one thing's for sure: She knows how to deliver a compulsively readable summer book. In this interview, MKA talks to Carol Fitzgerald, the president and co-founder of The Book Report Network, about THE WEEKENDERS, another trademark beach read...with a dark twist. She discusses the importance of female friendship, how her ever-optimistic outlook finds its way into all her stories, and tips for decorating her summer homes --- which make it no wonder she’s so good at writing “house porn”!
