DP Lyle “In Conversation” with Isabel Allende

DPL&IAllende 600X401

At the recent Book Passage Mystery Writers Conference I had the great honor of being “In Conversation” with the remarkable Isabel Allende. Isabel is smart, funny, quick of mind and word, and a very gifted literary writer who recently finished her first work of crime fiction. I am equally honored that she asked my advice with some of the medical and forensic aspects of this fun and gripping story.

RIPPER will be out in January, 2014. Look for it. It’s a wild ride.

    Congrats, Doug. I’m a huge fan of hers (and of yours). Is there a podcast available anywhere?

      Craig–She’s amazing. No, there isn’t a podcast of our conversation. Wish there was.

    I”ll look forward to reading the book! It would have been nice to hear a podcast had one existed but it is nice to hear about the conversation anyway! Thanks!

    I always enjoy this blog and appreciate the education & assistance.

      I added a link to the post that will direct you to a talk she gave on TED. Funny and moving—as Isabel is.

    Two of my favorite authors together! Very fun to see. I love magical realism and devoured House of the Spirits and all that followed. One day I’d like to try my hand at magical realism. I thought it would work in the book I’m working on now, but not so much.

      Thanks, Karen. I loved Maya’s Notebook, too. And Ripper is a thrill ride. Literary but a thrill none the less.
