(Publisher’s Weekly, Dec. 8 )
In an interview on Amazon.com, Dean Koontz talks about how he researches his bestsellers, “I never go on-line. My writing schedule and other obligations keep me busy 18/7. The other six hours, I sleep . . I do most of my research from books and publications, and by conducting interviews with specialists . . As a student, I hated research and libraries. I always shamelessly made up the facts in my reports and cited nonexistent books by nonexistent writers in my footnotes. . . I’ve been surprised to find that I greatly enjoy doing research. I think the difference is – in school, they told me what i had to learn, and I bristled at authority; when I chose the subject, I proved to be an industrious autodidact.”
