Welcome to BOOKS BY MY FRIENDS, CRISTINA. Let’s chat about your brand new release DISSECTION!
JH: What’s the blurb for your book?
CL: In Dissection, surgeon Steven Leeds and his former lover, Dr. Silvana Moretti, are beleaguered by an onslaught of heart attack and stroke victims.
What’s more disturbing is the catastrophic events are being caused by a rare arterial injury—a dissection—and they’re being preceded by cards announcing their arrival: “Your heart attack will arrive within one hour!” Private detective Kirk Miner and FBI agent Jack Mulville investigate, but they suspect Silvana, who harbors a grudge against the victims. The FBI thinks it has solved the case, but the apocalyptic bioterrorism plot designed to topple the U.S. government has just begun.
JH: What inspired you to write DISSECTION?
CL: A TV commercial about a cardiac medication. It started by wishing that we could get a warning in the mail about a forthcoming heart attack, so we could take the medication to prevent it.
JH: What one thing do you love most about writing?
CL: Entering my world, where anything is possible.
JH: What’s next for you in the way of writing/publishing?
CL: I have a prequel, which is the story of how Kirk Miner acquired his strange medical knowledge: IDENTITY CRISIS. I also have 2 other books which follow, both with the same PI Kirk Miner.
