"Most people think their jobs are boring; they have to do them every day. Show an interest and they'll talk your ear off about them."

"I have a friend, who's a cop, who won't write crime fiction because he says his job is boring.  He's a detective, and does accident reconstruction, mostly.  And actually, I just spent almost an hour talking to a Connecticut…"

I. J. Parker replied to J. E. Seymour's discussion Do you care about the author?
"I hated Wambaugh. Actually all things are rarely ever the same. And it strikes me that a policeman/detective may get so caught up in the minutiae of his job that the story gets lost in the boring detail."

Jed Power replied to J. E. Seymour's discussion Do you care about the author?
"Yes, I agree with you. I wonder though if, again, all things being equal--talent, etc., someone with a law enforcement background's writing could be topped for realism in the police procedural field? Joseph Wambaugh comes to mind? All the…"

I. J. Parker replied to J. E. Seymour's discussion Do you care about the author?
"Not familiar with any of those. Westlake rings a bell because his name i well known. Still, not my sort of thing. I read police procedurals, so tend to be on the opposing side.  :) Readers generally are not very familiar with the criminal…"

Jed Power replied to J. E. Seymour's discussion Do you care about the author?
"Of course it doesn't require that one lived it. If it did very litte crime fiction would ever be written. Just an observation that it is hard to top someone with first hand experience if all other considerations, including talent are equal. As…"

I. J. Parker replied to J. E. Seymour's discussion Do you care about the author?
"I have never knowingly read a crime novel by a former criminal. (Is it possible to be a "former" criminal?) There have been many, many superrealistic novels that have been entirely satisfying in creating their world for me, the reader,…"

By the way, let me know if you ever have an event in the Boston area. It's not that far from New Hampshire and I'd gladly come to it!

Thanks for your comments on my page. I've heard of Crimebake, but have never attended. Perhaps this year! Great to hear about your recent publishing ventures. I hope to follow that lead!

Hi J.E. At midnight GMT, 'I was at #1 in authors, 'Legacy of the Ripper' was at #5 in Thrillers, and my children's book Tilly's Tale was #1 in children's and #1 in Artwork. The rankings have changed since because votes were still being placed after the closing time but P & E have assured me they saved the voting database at the allotted closing time and that votes placed after that time will not be counted. Well done on your short story's top ten performance.

Best regards

Brian
