Entertainment Weekly interviewed Kathy about the latest Virals novel, CODE, and the writing process – check it out here!
Forensic anthropologist Kathy Reichs is best known for her Temperance Brennan books, which inspired the television series Bones, but these days she’s writing for a new generation of budding scientists. If you haven’t already, meet Tory Brennan, the great niece of Tempe and the 14-year-old star of the Virals series. After Tory and her friends are infected with a mutated form of canine parvovirus, they develop heightened senses and wolf-quick reflexes. Together, the super-powered Virals solve murder mysteries, hunt for lost treasure, and try to get back in time for their curfew.
In their third and latest outing, Code, the Virals take up geocaching, only to fall in with the enigmatic “Gamemaster.” Suddenly what was just a treasure hunt becomes a race against the clock — literally. We spoke to Reichs about her new book, a potential movie, and creative differences with her son (who co-authors the Virals series).
