Under the Covers is a series of six weekly, in-depth interviews I conducted in March and April 2016 with six prominent and successful authors working in several distinct categories and genres. As both a reader and writer myself, I find it both fascinating and revealing to get a glimpse into other writers’ thoughts, feelings, and motivations.

What do these six authors have in common? First, they’re all terrific storytellers, which I view as the primary object of good fiction; second, each has attained a high degree of success and visibility in their chosen genre or category, including major awards and bestseller rankings on one or more lists; and third, they are all darned interesting people, with a lot to say.

This interview series digs in to find out what makes these authors tick: how each views the world, how they balance being a successful author with the demands of daily life, what drives their fiction and choice of genre, and how they found their success. In the process, I hope to interest each author’s current fans, as well as introduce them to you, my own readers.

  5. Glad you’ll be interviewing Ken Liu. I have great respect for his writing and used to download every one of his short stories to re-read on my Palm Pilot and, later, iPhone.

    • Walter, so sorry for the late reply; I somehow missed this!

      I’m a huge Ken Liu fan, too…he really is an exceptional author, and was absolutely wonderful to interview. I think you’re going to enjoy his answers. Interview goes live on March 12.
