Jeffery Deaver is one of my favorite crime thriller authors, so I was thrilled (pun intended) to interview him for the podcast. We talked about his amazing career, how he creates such amazing characters like Lincoln Rhyme and Colter Shaw, about his writing process, advice for writers, and a lot more.
