Archer Mayor recently spoke at Avon Free Public Library. He read the opening chapter of his 26th Joe Gunther book -- The Company She Kept -- which will be released in October. He has a lot of charm, humility and humor.
Mayor began his writing career four decades ago writing history books. Along the way, he became a firefighter, later a police patrolman, and eventually -- and still -- a death investigator in the Vermont medical examiner's office. (That has to be the BEST real world job for a crime writer!) Mayor says his main job is writing, and he writes one book a year.
Be sure to read the third comment, from former CDP blogger, brattcat. Very funny.
