Hello and Welcome Joe! I'm happy to have you here and to learn a little bit more about you and your fabulous new book!
So tell us, what inspired you to become a writer?
After college I became an actor in film, television, and theatre, working opposite stars like Bruce Willis, Nathan Lane, Rosie O’Donnell, Holland Taylor, and Jason Robards. Sorry to name drop! Morphing into writing plays and now novels seem like the perfect progression. I knew my novels would include show business in some way, since show business has always been such a huge part of my life. As an avid mystery reader, it was clear to me that my novels would also be page-turning mysteries with clever plot twists, engaging characters, romance, and lots of clues leading to a surprising conclusion. Since coming from a funny Italian-American family, I also knew humor would play a role in my novels.
Can you tell us a little bit about creating the Jana Lane mystery series?
