Michael Connelly Novel

“I feel I’m functioning at some level as a journalist
because even though I write fiction,
I’m trying to get the world accurate.”
Michael Connelly

Michael Connelly


A few months ago I discovered a fantastic writer. I first heard about this writer after watching an interview he gave on Between the Lines hosted by Barry Kibrick.

The writer is Michael Connelly and he is one of the kings of crime fiction. Connelly spent 14 years as a crime reporter, before he started writing novels.

He’s written twenty-eight novels which I plan on reading every single one. I just finished reading my eighth Connelly novel and I can’t wait to pick up the next one.

It’s been a long time since I found a writer that was entertaining enough to want to read everything they’ve ever written. The last writer of this caliber was Michael Crichton

If you’re looking for a great crime novel that you just can’t put down, pick up a Michael Connelly novel.

Must See TV

“Either write something worth reading or
do something worth writing.”
Benjamin Franklin

Well Read    BTL

I’ve been doing an excellent job this year of watching less television. What shows I do watch, I find taping them is the most productive way to enjoy television. Most of what is on TV I can live without. However, there are two shows that I have to watch every week:

One is Well Read, an author interview show on PBS. The hosts are, Terry Tazioli and Mary Ann Gwinn. Tazioli has interviewed authors such as Jodi Picoult, Jane Smiley, James McBride, Marlon James, David Mitchell, Louise Penny, Anne Lamott, William Gibson and many others. Most of the books on my “to read list” are because of an interview I saw on Well Read.

The other show I watch every week is, Between the Lines hosted by Barry Kibrick. Again, this show interviews award-winning authors.

If you’re serious about reading and writing, both these shows are must see TV.
