Connie Martinson is a wonderful and revered book-loving interviewer with one of the best book shows on cable. She has interviewed so many writers, and this year with the publication of LITTLE NIGHT I became one of them.
Here is Part 1
And here is Part 2
Our interview was more like a conversation between friends. Connie is so warm and insightful. She made it easy to talk about the themes of LITTLE NIGHT, including domestic violence, and to speak about my own experience. While it’s hard to talk about abuse, I think it’s very important. If I share my story, maybe it makes it easier for someone else to share hers. If you’re reading this and wondering, you’re not alone. I’ve been there and found help.
Thanks to Linda Fairstein,I’ve learned of other resources. Author and former prosecutor focusing on crimes of violence against women and children, Linda served as head of the sex crimes unit of the Manhattan District Attorney’s office from 1976 until 2002 and is the author of a series of novels featuring Manhattan prosecutor Alexandra Cooper including just-out NIGHT WATCH. I follow her on Twitter, and learn a lot…
including about Safe Horizons and Joyful Heart Found.
Back to my interview with Connie. We also talked about writing, sisters, love, the Ed Sherman murder trial, owls, extinct species, the gorgeousness and wilderness of Central Park. I hope you’ll watch the videos.
Love to all…
