Oh good one julie. Garwood is some really high grade nostalgia reading for me like even if i've read the book a billion times it works yes in. That's such talent and it was strange. Because i started with your historical. Yeah and then all of a sudden. It's like suspense lillard site. Would you do yup. Oh this yeah. It was weird too. I remember because i was a historical reader of garwood. And then also Judith mcnaughton sorta writing contemporaries and katherine coulter switch to suspense to they.

I i know that problem. I spent the weekend reading a series up so half of my family is ready to kick me out of the house for this horrible. Her heretic decision. I have made. But i read book three because i was pretty sure i'd read books one and two and then i finished three and i think i read too so i started to and then i looked like when did i read one.

I read three hours in the military. I go back to well. Maybe i'll skip to. They're like no. This is unacceptable. I cannot get. This is terrible.

You just love that. Oh it's wonderful. And i noticed that if i don't have a book that i'm reading and enjoying i tend to do both nonfiction and fiction at the same time So i'm reading a really weird nonfiction. And i'll take a break from that and then go back to the fiction. And if i don't have the fiction to read let my brain rest in. I get really ornery like i'm unpleasant. My bugs that's fun.

"katherine coulter" Discussed on The Joys Of Binge Reading: The Best in Mystery, Romance and Historicals
"Not seven graphs seven versions. I miss the mark several times before. I finally hit the story and it came together for me. I was getting ready to walk away from it. Sometimes it doesn't work. Yes yeah you walked away from mini books bookstaver. No no. i've put things down for a little while and worked on other things at several of the standalone. Especially the first ones that i was writing on. Spec i was. I was writing inbetween other books. And you know oh. I've got a month until the next revision is due. I'm going to work on this. So there was a little bit of that but i've never planned to just abandon a story. I mean this is my. I'm writing now my twenty fifth books. This is my twenty fourth novel. That's pretty good that out of out of all that. There's only really been one. That i was just going to throw up my hands but i was in the middle of the pandemic and we we got away. We went and house sat and the change of scenery. Everything clicked in sometimes. Sometimes that's just what you need. You just need a different environment. Yeah yeah that's great. Look make your name with Thriller series fiction as we've discussed and your homicide detective a nashville tyler jackson. She's one of your most popula heroines again. He would very closely with the nashville police including sitting on on post-mortems which seemed to me on by a sort of beyond the call of duty. Is that one of the hardest things that you've done in your research. Yes hands down hands down. I did a number of ride alongs with police with metro. Homicide with the troll. I've talked to the fbi toward facilities Worked with the field office. The one thing i hadn't done was an in person autopsy. I'd done online ones which are incredibly helpful. But i had never done the the actual sit down in person and do it. And i was terrified and i was worried. I was afraid there would be somebody my father's age or a child. I didn't know is they. Don't just do one autopsy. At a time. they do multiple autopsies at once. And of course there was a man. My dad's age and there was a child and there was a woman my age and there was a teenager and it was just both horrifying and fascinating and possibly the most spiritual experience i have ever had because i was so terrified at the beginning i mean i wouldn't even get near the bodies i was on the other side of the room and by the end i literally had my head looking inside a person and i dare anybody who doesn't believe that there is a higher power to look inside somebody and realize we're all just little machines. Were all exactly the same inside so there is something that makes us who we are spirit. Soul whatever you wanna call it and i i absolutely believe that and it really was horrible and wonderful at the same time. I'm not going to do it again. That's an amazing thing. All i could imagine with the horrible smell did it didn't smell i mean that's you know. Relatively this is terrible. Fresh bodies don't smell. They only really smell if they've been decomposing. And these were not decomposed bodies. These were thinking more of the formaldehyde. Sort of just the very. I mean it smells no more than a lab than than anything else very clean. It was bright was it was not. It was the exact opposite of everything. You would imagine everything you've seen on. Tv is not right. It's worth doing our wrote a whole piece about it. On my blog called icy dead people a little tongue in cheek there but it was. It was truly a formative experience for me and i'm so glad i did it and so glad we always put links to things that are mentioned in our podcast so our lookout that blog and we'll put a link to it. There were people who might be interested in seeing a fuller account of their that. I found fascinating. Look you mentioned that you did a bridge in the fbi series. So you co-authored deck with katherine coulter who already has be seller if b is series. That she's writing. How did they co authoring. Come about and who which one of you got to do. The bridge pat and was set. The brit parts the fun part so catherine was looking for a co writer because she had a series idea of britain. The fbi that she wanted to do and as it happens. I'm at her agency. So that worked out very nicely. Her agent mentioned it to my agent. My agent mentioned it to me. And i wasn't planning to do co writing but this is katherine coulter. She's a legend. I've been reading her my whole life so i said absolutely throwing my name in the hat hat in the ring. Throw my hat in the ring. And then i didn't hear anything for a couple of months and i figured that wasn't happening so i just done a new deal with mira. My regular publisher for for new books and literally. That deal closed on friday and on monday morning. I got a call. Listen you're about to get a job offer and then the phone rang and it was katherine. An all i can remember is within two minutes. I was laughing hysterically. Because she's really funny and we just took off from there. So the process every corroding team has a different process. We i would go out to her house in california and we would spend the week plotting out the book. I brought it back to national and drafted it talking to her regularly. You know about what's going on. Here's where i am you know. Oh this isn't working the way we thought let's fix it. And then when i finished the draft i would give it back to her because i don't. I'm not good at doing pages. Having them looked at and having them be finalized well. I can't see the whole story until the whole story. Is there so she was very gracious to let me do do it. My way and it worked out really well. So i dragged sheet edited. Send it back to me at that. She'd take one more pass in than we would turn it in in that. That worked really really well. We did six books in the series and it was a blast. I did a lot of the british. She did a lot of the british. She's got she's got family there. I i'm fascinated and love england and scotland and so spent a lot of time there. I yeah it's it's not hard not hard. It's hard not to have british characters in my book actual. It's great turning a bit now from the specific books to your wider career. You head quite a fascinating time before you even turn your attention to being a full time author. I wonder if you could give us a little bit of part biography of that period. You worked full time in politics before you went back to what hit always been. I think i love the idea of writing. How did that experience. The non writing experienced feed into your writing. You know i don't. That's a hard question because everything we do forms us into the person we are right and so without that we can't be the writer that we are but everything i did was nothing related to what i do now. I went to school thinking. I was going to be a writer and i was going to get an mfa and master. Fine arts which is the degree that professional riders get.
