I was approached today by a fellow from the BBC; on Monday (I think?) they are doing an interview with the fabulous Sara Paretsky, author of the V. I. Warshawski mystery books, among other great novels, about her first V. I. book, ‘Indemnity Only’. As I have her listed on my MySpace profile as a favorite author, I suppose it came up in some kind of search. I’ll tell you a neat story of my ‘brush with fame’ having to do with Sara Paretsky another day.
Anyway, I was happy to offer a question which they may not be able to use since it doesn’t deal solely with the book ‘Indemnity Only’. They are looking for more questions, and some will be able to offer them via phone. If you have any appropriate questions for Sara, here is the text of Gary’s letter regarding the interview:
