      It was good getting to know you a bit, Catherine, and I enjoyed our chat (and your novel).

      Catherine, Loved the interview and Janet’s unusual questions. (Good job, Janet!). I identified with you liking of research. When I returned to college I found I loved research articles and while others groaned, I fulfilled the requirement and more!

    Good interview. And it sounds like a great book. I’ll look forward to reading it. Did this require much research – either on the drug side, or on the nun side? Congratulations on getting this book out there.

    James, I did some research on the Mexican drug cartel before writing The Nun and the Narc but it was more to get the flavor of the subject than to talk about actual drugs they dealt with or show the violence. A couple of intetesting factoids that came up were the patrron saint for drug dealers which caused me to have a dealer who thought it a sin to hurt a nun and the man’s belt with marajuana leaves carved in the leather. As for nun research I had a friend who answered a lot of my questions. It’s amazing what one can find on the internet.

      Thanks for the info, Catherine. Sounds like a good book and it is on my TBR list.

        A word of warning, James: it’s one of those “I’ll just read one more chapter” books… don’t start at bedtime. 🙂

      I’m glad to have some different questions. It’s no fun seeing the same conversation in multiple interviews, although of course there’ll be overlap.

    Janet, I’m so pleased you think it’s a “just one more chapter” kind of book. I’ve had several other readers describe it that way, too. Thanks!
