Author Brian Freeman has written a number of books that have been my favorites for the last few years. I have read everyone of his books based on his "Stride" character, in order, and have never been disappointed. This past Saturday Ukester and I were fortunate to meet him at the Chanhassen Library.
The above picture is the photo you see on the back of his books. But after reading his books he said that most people coming to his signings are expecting to see someone that looks like this:
He gave an interesting and humorous talk about himself and how he got into the publishing world, a little about his daily life, and read from his newest book, Spilled Blood, to be released in May.
I haven't read Spilled Blood, obviously, but his other books, other than Bone House (a stand alone), have been about a character name Stride who is based out of Duluth, MN and lives in and out of this actual cottage on Park Point in Duluth:
Because his books are mostly about MN and I can identify with the locations they have felt like the characters were people that I could have living next door, work with, or bump into at the local shop.
If you like suspense filled, psychological mystery reading, I can guarantee you will like Brian Freeman's books. But be forewarned they are filled with sex, violence and bad language that may offend some so don't read them if you are offended by that ilk.
Here is Brian Freeman's website if you would like to read more about him and his books. For you who would like to meet him - check out the event page.
Have you read any of his books? Did you grow up on Park Point or in Duluth and have any fun stories to share?
