Maryville Talks Books: One on One with #1 New York Times Crime Thriller Novelist, Lisa Gardner

Often referred to as the “Queen of Suspense,” Lisa Gardner almost dares you to try to figure out her mysteries before the last page of her books. However, most of her readers will tell you, that’s just not possible with Gardner’s never ending plot twists. In this one on one conversation, Gardner reveals some of her writing secrets: how she comes up with those plot twists, where she gets her characters’ names and characteristics, and how a walk through the serene New Hampshire White Mountains can inspire some of her most poignant scenes.  Plus, it’s not just her characters who can be mysterious. Gardner has a few secrets of her own.  Learn about her other pen name, favorite past time and unusual desires she fulfilled in writing her most recent novel Touch and Go.

SEGMENT DESCRIPTION:

With over 22 million books in print, a lot of people will recognize author Lisa Gardner’s name.  But, how much do you know about this number one New York Times bestselling crime novelist?  She has quite a humorous outlook on life.  Meet her here.
