Interview with T.J. Jones, author of My Sister’s Detective

10 Dec 2018

What can you tell us about your new release, My Sister’s Detective?

My Sister’s Detective is the first of a series featuring Eric Slater.  Slater is more human than most of the detectives I read about, and that’s what makes him fun.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I remember reading countless books as a child and always thinking that I could do that!

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

 It’s easier for me to say who my favorite authors are, and I’m dating myself here.  Everyone says Fitzgerald, and for good reason,  I always liked John MacDonald, Zane Grey, and I liked Hemingway’s short stories more than his novels.

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Can I interview ghosts? Because I really want to ask Salinger, “What the hell?”

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

What I love about writing is crawling into my characters head and living their reality.

What scene in My Sister’s Detective was your favorite to write?

Hard to pin down my favorite scene, but I like putting people together and keeping them in character, whether it’s comedic or all out war.

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

I always try to imagine what it’s like to be in someone else’s shoes, doesn’t always work, but it helps.
