MC SQUARED: MICHAEL CONNELLY INTERVIEWED LIVE ON STAGE BY MICHAEL CARLSON

I will have the distinct pleasure and privilege of interviewing Michael Connelly at a public event at the Prince Charles Cinema, just off Leicester Square, Tuesday 25 October, at 7pm. Tickets are available at Waterstones as well as via the Prince Charles, and I hope to be able to post a report of the event here at IT soon afterwards. I first met Michael long ago, at a reading he gave in Melbourne, Florida, soon after I'd reviewed Trunk Music for the Spectator, and I was lucky enough to write an afterword to Crime Beat, a collection of his reporting published a few years ago. He's a great interview, a superb crime writer, and well worth listening to.

He is also a super generous person. I spoke with Michael online many times during the time I took 2 courses on B&N ... they were group studies of 2 of his books, but at the time I was writing my first novel (still unpublished but through no fault of Michael Connelly.) He gave me great writing tips and was extremely generous with his time and encouragement. I have read every book he has ever written. I love the books but also respect the man. Will be adding your blog to my blog lists!

I'm a fan and the one thing I'd like to ask him is: how did Chasing the Dime get through your shit-detector?
