Please join the Friends of the Jackson Public Library for "Writing a Suspense Novel: Behind the Scenes" by famous local author Lisa Gardner on Sunday evening May 6th at 7 pm at the Jackson Public Library, located at 52 Main Street in Jackson, NH.
Lisa Gardner will take us behind the scenes of her writing process and answer questions such as: Where do you get your ideas? How long does it take you to write a story? What is your daily writing schedule? When did you decide to become a writer? Why do you write suspense novels rather than another genre? Who is your favorite character and are they based on someone in Jackson? And finally, do you have any advice for aspiring writers?
Lisa Gardner, a #1 New York Times bestselling thriller novelist, began her career in food service, but after catching her hair on fire numerous times, she took the hint and focused on writing instead. A self-described research junkie, she turned her interest in police procedure and criminal minds into a streak of internationally acclaimed suspense novels, including her most recent release, Look For Me.
With over 22 million books in print, Lisa is published in 30 countries. When not writing, she loves to hike, garden, snowshoe and play cribbage.
