Thanks for the video Karen---I like how he tried to describe the genre as a thriller/sci-fi/historical/horror story-lol! It really is true though.

I thought it was nice to be able to see him talk about his book! And I loved his description too!

Thank you Karen, I really enjoyed this video with Mr. Dahlquist. Just as I enjoyed the interview you had with him. He seems to be such a charming man. Hearing his voice even added to his charm. He has a sweet and soft spoken voice. A voice you instantly trust. I am so grateful when we as readers get to see more of an author than just a picture. It even helps me when I am reading their book.

That's how I feel too Sandra and why I enjoy our interviews with the authors more when I can hear their voices and, what happens so often is that I have a set list of quesions that usually end up getting ignored becuase it turns into a conversation with the people and then other questions just materialize on the spot. wink.gif

What a wonderful interview! Thank you for finding that for us. He hails from the Pacific Northwest...we could have been neighbors whistle.gif
I find his take on the different attitudes towards reading between the UK and the US interesting. Sadly, the US has an astonishing low literacy rate compared to many other countries (obviously that's not any of us here at this site!) But Kerala, India and Cuba can boast almost 100% literacy and they are quite poor there. I really like this website because it is focused on beautiful Johnny and his love of books which definitely encourages me to read more!

I thought his comments on differences in reading between countries was interesting as well, but I don't think it was a reflection of literacy. The US has one of the highest literacy rates, however, I think people in different countries may have different tastes in books, movies, etc. I think this book had a lukewarm reception in the US, but better in Europe and it could be mainly because of the "type" of story. I doubt I would have picked this book up myself unless I heard that Johnny was interested in it. I'm glad I did!

And sad to say, there's been little or no marketing of the book here either.
