Interview with Nathan Pettijohn, Author of Public Opinion

20 Jul 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Public Opinion?

I tried to write a screenplay version of this story in 2009, and always wanted to revisit it.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?


What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

There is a murder scene that was difficult to write, but I enjoyed the process of figuring it out.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Not sure if it was purposeful, but I did write this book while sitting outside mostly.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

“How you live today is how you live your life.” – Tara Brach

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Anyone can be manipulated.
