Check out these two great Q&As I did recently for the release of my latest Temperance Brennan novel Bones of the Lost:
With the release of the 16th book in the series, Bones of the Lost, this week in the UK could you tell us a little about the new outing for Temperance Brennan and the inspiration for the book?
The inspiration came from a recent trip I made to Afghanistan and Kyrgyzstan with the USO. I was so impressed with the dedication of the troops and with their bravery in the face of danger and hardship that I had to write about it. Also, my daughter is a nurse and works with organizations dedicated to helping victims of human trafficking. She encouraged me to visit that very important topic.

The other Q&A was with Milo’s Rambles:
What kind of relationship do you have with Temperance Brennan?
A complicated one. Decades together can cause any two people to cross swords — especially if they share a single headspace — but generally we see eye to eye. Tempe has been suffering from split personality syndrome for the last nine TV seasons, which has been hard.
Are the names of the characters in your novels important?
Very. They help the reader tell the characters apart.
