Joanna Schaffhausen at the Parlin Library, May 2, at 7pm
Are you fascinated by crime? Why did they do it? How were they caught? If so, you’re going to love our next author, Joanna Schaffhausen.
She can wield a scalpel, which she learned while studying neuroscience. She has a doctorate in psychology and a long-standing interest in the brain, how it develops and how it can go so very wrong. As an editorial producer for ABC News, she wrote programs for World News Tonight, Good Morning America, and 20/20. She is also the 2016 winner of the Mystery Writers of America/St. Martin’s Minotaur First Crime Novel Award.
But it is her writing, the pace, the characters and the stories that get you. When asked how she gets her ideas, Ms. Shaffhausen says, “Anywhere and everywhere, but especially from true crime stories. I still go to sleep at night to the dulcet tones of Forensic Files. I mine the stories for how investigators feel about their cases; how they talk and think. I also find it fascinating how initially there will be lots of avenues to follow, each with many clues, and the thrill of discovery is in learning which of these pieces of evidence turns out to be the key to solving the case.”
Learn more about her books, her process, and her villains on Tuesday, May 2nd at 7:00 pm. Coffee and pastries provided by The Friends of the Everett Libraries.
