I was recently interviewed by Publisher’s Weekly about Bones, Virals and the writing process for the latest Virals novel, CODE:
Do you find co-authoring a very different experience than writing on your own?
Yes. With the Temperance Brennan novels, I don’t do the same kind of detailed outline so much, but when working with another writer you have to know where you’re going. And with my adult books, I always write on my own. I’ll send the first chapters in to my publisher so they have a sense of where the book is going and can work on a cover and press materials. When I finish, I send in the complete book. The only people I interact with while I’m writing are my colleagues who can help me with certain forensics that are not my specialty.
