News Flash: E Z Knight is stuck in the Big Easy!

THIS IS OLD NEWS! KNIGHT’S BIG EASY MADE ITS DEBUT JUNE 30!

E Z Knight fans have been after me about when the next episode will be published. Well the first draft is finished and on my editors’ desks. The book will hit Amazon very soon!

JUNE 30!

That’s right. Poor ol’ E Z Knight has been stuck down in Norlins (New Orleans) for the past two and a half months (my writing time, that is). He’s in the Big Easy trying to stop some really mean bastards from killing a whole bunch of people, including Billie, the son of E Z’s parole officer, Tamara White Cloud.

Leaving Smokey and his buddies Beautiful and Booger behind in Southern California, he’s working with Black Zack, an old jazz trombone player, and beautiful redhead FBI Special Agent Pooh Dooley (Poodoo), who’s working undercover in more ways than one. They’re chasing and being chased by a couple of despicable villains named Papa Legba and Sheriff DePue. These two lowlifes are playing God over the lives of 500 children.

This is the wildest ride E Z’s been on yet, and if you’ve read Knight’s Ransom, you know I’m not talking about Disneyland amusements. With eyes popping, necks breaking, stabbing, shooting, choking, and even a little alligator chomping, E Z is working his way to the bottom of this, his deadliest of all capers yet. And staying alive and among the living has been especially difficult with a Voodoo queen doing everything she can to make him a zombie, and his new ally Jazz player Black Zack hauling something a little more illegal than plain fescue clippings in back of his pickup.

Time is running out–500 kids’ lives are at stake. Find out what happens in Knight’s Big Easy coming at the end of June.

Still on the back burner is Jazzy Brass’s Missing Scenes. Knight’s Big Easy is Jazzy’s debut, and she’ll accompany E Z in every episode from their meeting in the Big Easy forward.

Happy reading!

Our Favorite Contemporary Bestselling Authors

I have a number of favorite authors—those stellar bestsellers that are impossible to beat. Many are namebrands, familiar in every household. Most of them are mystery, suspense, action/adventure or thriller authors. Those are the ones that really pull me in. Their novels live in my mind so clearly that I’m drawn in and feel as though I live inside their stories.

I’ve compiled a few of these authors’ fun interviews. Just click on their names. Generally, each one of these heavy-hitters have done multiple interviews over their long careers. I’ve tried to compile their most recent ones.

Tell me what you think. If you’re a reader, these interviews will draw you in—they’ll show you how human, yet how very imaginative, these fine writers are. WARNING: after reading/listening to/watching each of these interviews, you’ll want to buy all of their books. If you’re a writer, these interviews will inspire you to write even better stories.

Do me a favor and add links to better interviews you’ve found as well as those of some of your favorite authors that I haven’t included. Tell us why you like them.

Here’s my list.

Douglas Preston: Author of many bestsellers, including The Codex. He gave me an excellent review on my thriller Brainstorm. Teamed up with Lincoln Childs, they wrote The Relic as well as eleven other thrillers in a series featuring the unforgettable FBI Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast. Now they have another bestselling series out—will it ever stop? I hope not.

James Rollins: Writes the action-packed, bestselling Sigma Force series, as well as many other chart-toppers. He has certainly inspired me—and he’s a heck of a nice guy in person. It doesn’t hurt any that he also gave me a great review for Brainstorm.

Dean Koontz: The biggest influence on my writing career, early on. His imagery and description are second to none. You’ll find some fun audio and video about his golden retriever Trixi, as well as some other really great content, including interviews, on his incredible website.

Stephen King: Who hasn’t this guy influenced and inspired?

James Lee Burke: A great writer whose characterization is unbeatable.

Tess Gerritson: A fun lady who knows how to write great thrillers.

James Patterson (1) & (2): Does anyone not love his Alex Cross novels and the way he can mix Cross’s personal life with the dramatic plot and make it fun and exciting?

Nelson DeMille: I love this guy—a really smooth storyteller who can make you believe anything he writes in his stories.

Clive Cussler: The action/adventure king of thrillers—a true Thrillermaster!

Robert B. Parker: Creator of Spencer and Jesse Stone, now deceased, but what a wonderful storyteller!

I could go on and on, but my brief comments won’t do any of them the least bit of justice. Here are a few more of my favorites:

John Connolly

Harlan Coban (1)  (2)

Nora Roberts (a.k.a. J D Robb)

Phillip Margolin

Jonathan Kellerman

John Grisham

Mary Higgins Clark

David Baldacci

Steve Berry

Terry Brooks

Knight’s Ransom Only $2.99!

Book 1 of The E Z Knight Reports Series

Please check it out: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007F08MU8

A sexy, humorous and irreverent series as well as a somewhat realistic and poignant look at the darker side of life, crime and the human condition. With a modern-day, ramped up “The Rockford Files”/”Magnum PI” feel, a Jack Bauer-capable hero and a “24” pace, it consists of page-turning, episodic novels. Knight’s Ransom is the first in the series. Knight’s Big Easy will debut soon.
