5 questions for Linda Greenlaw
By Bob Minzesheimer, USA TODAY
From USA TODAY - Go to article
- Is fiction easier than non-fiction?
No. That's what I thought, but it's harder. It's totally different to look at a blank screen. For the first time, I needed an outline. I was 100 pages into it, and I had a dead body and didn't know who did it or why.
- Does writing interfere with fishing?
A lot. I need to write the first thing every day. My fishing has become very much part time. I find it refreshing, a break from the writing. But for right now, fishing is in the margins of my life. To write well, writing has to be your top priority.
- How much are you like your main character, Jane Bunker (a Florida detective who returns home to Maine to become a marine insurance investigator)?
Not much. I was never a detective, never lived in Florida. But like me, she has no special God-given abilities. She knows how to work. Persistence and determination get her through. I'm like that.
- Since you have written about your search for a romantic mate, how's your love life?
Thanks for asking. It's good. I have a real special guy. I'm in better shape than Jane is.
- What's on top of your summer reading list?
Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything.
