interview, Brandilyn Collins told a tale or two on her fellow travelers from their recent "thriller tour." The group is pictured at left in a relatively sane moment. (One of the rare ones, I'm led to understand). Left to right are Tosca Lee, Robin Caroll, Brandilyn Collins, and James Rubart.
In the interest of "fair and balanced reporting," I've contacted the group members and been told that Brandilyn was far from her self-described "perfect." Matter of fact, Jim Rubart felt that description was simply another example of Brandilyn's tendency to write fiction. Jim showed great restraint when asked to give the low-down on some of Brandilyn's activities, though. Truly a gentleman.
I haven't been able to get details about the infamous "cab ride" except that Robin had to sit in the front seat with the driver (not a great experience), while Brandilyn and Tosca laughed from the back seat. Maybe someone will whisper more to me at ACFW.
Thanks, Brandilyn, for the interview and for being a good sport. And thanks to the other members of the tour for their input. You're all great writers and a credit to the profession--even when you're making faces at the camera.
Late-breaking news!!! I've just completed an interview with author Robin Caroll (one of the members of the thriller tour) and will post it on Monday. In addition to more serious topics (her writing, ACFW, her other interests) she gives us a few more thoughts and a picture or two that should be fun. Come back then.
