I was blessed at Left Coast Crime in Monterey, CA to have the opportunity to interview Carla Norton, author of “The Edge of Normal.” My good luck included a venue in the hospitality room just before the conference auction. Behind us, staff kept busy with last minute checks on merchandise, which included many new and classic signed copies of bestselling mysteries, and mystery genre memorabilia. Who could ask for a more inspiring setting to interview a bestselling author?
Carla Norton is the ultimate professional: international journalist, New York Times bestselling true crime writer, creator of scary psychological thrillers, and a personable and lively interview guest. Her knowledge on high profile, police procedure is impressive. No wonder the FBI learns profiling from her.
Carla answered my many questions at this interview, gears spinning and data falling into place with Matrix-like precision. In spite of her hard handle on the gruesome facts surrounding the subjects in her writing, she demonstrates a unique understanding of humanity under duress. Her ability to express underlying motives and emotions of characters, both good and evil, is the mark of a great mystery writer.
