Interview with Richard Rybicki, Author of The Green Line

02 Feb 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write The Green Line?

The inspiration for the book came from a real unsolved murder in Chicago back in the 1990s.

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

I mainly read crime thrillers and mysteries. These are also my favorite genres to write. They say write what you know so I do.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

‘Wrecked’ by Joe Ice and ‘A Ticket to the Boneyard’ by Lawrence Block

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The opening scene was my favorite. It’s where I reintroduce the main character and the mysterious woman who sets in motion the events in the story.

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

Always do the right thing no matter how difficult.

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

No one should get away with murder.
