Donna Leon - Author of the Guido Brunetti Mystery series

In another partnership with Warwick’s Books, Jeniffer interviews prolific Crime Fiction author, Donna Leon. This one will especially delight both fans of the genre and aspiring Crime Fiction writers.

Donna Leon is the author of the Brunetti Mysteries, and in this episode she tells Jeniffer about her process, and how real life is always inspiring new ideas for her next books. 
Having lived globally and travelled extensively, it’s no wonder she never seems to run out of those ideas—she writes at a pace of one novel a year! With her character, Brunetti, she wanted to create a protagonist who’s flawed, yet loveable, and put him into real-life situations to see what happens. And for nearly 30 years, her formula has been wildly successful!
