Writer-in-Residence interviews #1 bestselling author James Patterson

A few weeks ago, our Writer-in-Residence Jessica Strawser had the honor of joining the world’s #1 bestselling author James Patterson onstage, in front of a packed audience of readers of all ages, at the Cincinnati School for Creative and Performing Arts. No ticket? No problem! We’re pleased to bring you the live theater recording of their conversation as this month’s very special episode of "Inside the Writer’s Head".

Listen as they discuss Patterson’s three newest releases—the adult thriller Killer Instinct , opens a new window(coauthored with Howard Roughan), the middle-grade adventure novel Max Einstein: Rebels With a Cause, opens a new window (coauthored with Chris Grabenstein), and the picture book Bigger Words for Little Geniuses, opens a new window (coauthored with his wife, Susan Patterson)—what it was like collaborating with President Bill Clinton, what’s up next from him (Hint: Alex Cross fans with young readers on your gift list should be very excited!) and much more.
