Jeffery Deaver radio interview

Yesterday, Jim Mora interviewed bestselling US novelist Jeffery Deaver on his popular Radio New Zealand programme "Afternoons". I haven't had a chance to listen to the entire interview yet (it's 25 minutes long), but from what I've heard already, it's an interesting interview - covering song writing, Deaver's latest novel, XO (a Kathryn Dance novel that also brings quadriplegic criminalist Lincoln Rhyme, of BONE COLLECTOR fame - played by Denzel Washington in the Hollywood film adaptation), his writing of the latest James Bond novel, CARTE BLANCHE, creating a new James Bond cocktail, getting into writing, and honing and improving the skill and craft of intricate plotting and tension-building, amongst other topics.

Click on the below link to listen to Jim Mora's intriguing interview with Deaver, who is a very interesting man, as well as a talented storyteller.

Last year, I was fortunate enough to get the exclusive New Zealand interview with Jeffery Deaver in the lead-up to the release of CARTE BLANCHE. You can read the eventual feature article, for the Sunday Star-Times, here, and Deaver's 9mm interview, which I conducted when I met Deaver during his later New Zealand visit, here (see photo above right).

Are you a fan of Jeffery Deaver? What did you think of CARTE BLANCHE? Of the Kathryn Dance series?

  2. How fortituous! Carte Blanch is on my TBR list and I never heard a Jeffrey Deaver interview before! Thanks for this nugget of gold!
