Here's another one of those annoying hypothetical questions. Which do you think would be preferable: writing one novel that was a huge success both critically and financially and then fading into relative obscurity, or selling forty or fifty books over a period of twenty or thirty years, while remaining in relative obscurity the whole time?

In other words, I guess, would you prefer the career of Harper Lee or the kind of career that a lot of mystery writers seem to have?

I think we know the answer to that. Multiple murders, whether they involve a serial killer or not, are easier.
You've got to come up with a lot of fascinating action with only one body.
No wonder I have so much trouble writing my books.
