    Book Discussion with fran lewis

    in Writing

    Book Discussion welcomes Dr. Glenn Parrish the author of The Renaissance of Aspirin. This is the story of Anita Thomas and Jack Wheaton, two young doctors unwittingly in possession of a designer antibody for the treatment of fibromyalgia syndrome. The new drug is effective, but dangerously flawed. The problem is Anita Thomas has developed a cheap, safe alternative agent. Naturally, after expenditure of a fortune in development, the drug manufactures are not at all pleased with her. The pieces unfold, as we follow Anita and Jack from beautiful upscale midtown to the seedier downtown counterparts of Boston and Atlanta over shadowed by deadly stalkers and embellished by amorous often comically frustrating misadventures. The Renaissance of Aspirin is peppered with industrial espionage, suspense and passion as the chase is on for the first cure for fibromyalgia. Entangled with colorful comrades such as Dasher Clay; Stormi Seales and Khandi Barr in their camp, Anita and Jack barely keep ahead of the treacherous cabal of nemeses; Luciana Velasquez and Jason Brasil led by the Über-villain, Orson Quirk. Paced in the tradition of The Pelican Brief, Coma or a contemporary Maltese Falcon, The Renaissance of Aspirin is both plot and character driven with a ly credible McGuffin at its core. These complex characters are funny, mean, desperate, lonely and at the same time very humanly imperfect. Readers will find their prickly exploits thoroughly entertaining. Dr. Parrish will discuss his novel and explain Fibromyalgia to our audience. Please join me at four eastern, three central and two mountain. I am your host Fran Lewis editor of MJ magazine.

    LET'S WRITE WITH FRAN LEWIS

    in Books

    Four eastern, three central and two mountain: Let's Write with your host Fran Lewis is a new show that will focus on the art of writing itself. On this first show we will talk about how the three novelists create their storylines for revolving or reoccuring characters and they they manage to keep reader interest. What is the difference between writing a trilogy or three book series as opposed to having one or several characters in a series? How do they create open ended endings that lead into the next book? How do they create conflict for the main characters and which minor characters support the main characters when solving the main conflict or problem that the author has created? How do these authors create the murder scene or the crime scene and how do you decide on your vicitm or victims? When ending chapters do they tend to lead into the next one or is there a change of scenery, setting and plot line. These and many other questions and writing tips will be answered when New York Times Best Selling Author John Lescroart, Award winning author Mark Rubinstein and Award winning author Mary Martin join me, Fran Lewis to discuss the art of writing. Let's Write welcomes questions from authors and writers in the chat room. Fran Lewis: Editor of MJ magazine, author of the Bertha series and Faces Behind the Stones Series.

    Let's Write with Fran Lewis and NYTIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR Tess Gerristen

    in Books

    Let's Write welcomes NYTIMES best selling author of the Rizzoli and Isles series Tess Gerristen. Her new title: Die Again is the next in this series.


    When Boston homicide detective Jane Rizzoli and medical examiner Maura Isles are summoned to a crime scene, they find a killing worthy of the most ferocious beast—right down to the claw marks on the corpse. But only the most sinister human hands could have left renowned big-game hunter and taxidermist Leon Gott gruesomely displayed like the once-proud animals whose heads adorn his walls. Did Gott unwittingly awaken a predator more dangerous than any he’s ever hunted?
     
    Maura fears that this isn’t the killer’s first slaughter, and that it won’t be the last. After linking the crime to a series of unsolved homicides in wilderness areas across the country, she wonders if the answers might actually be found in a remote corner of Africa


    Six years earlier, a group of tourists on safari fell prey to a killer in their midst. Marooned deep in the bush of Botswana, with no means of communication and nothing but a rifle-toting guide for protection, the terrified tourists desperately hoped for rescue before their worst instincts—or the wild animals prowling in the shadows—could tear them apart. But the deadliest predator was already among them, and within a week, he walked away with the blood of all but one of them on his hands.
     
    Now this killer has chosen Boston as his new hunting ground, and Rizzoli and Isles must find a way to lure him out of the shadows and into a cage. Even if it means dangling the bait no hunter can resist: the one victim who got away. We will talk about how she created this novel, the storyline, keeping reader interest and what's next for her two main characters. Join me at four eastern for this exciting show and ask your questions in the chat room. I am your host Fran Lewis
