Literaturschock: Mr Deaver, if you look in the mirror and into your own soul, what would you see?

Jeffery Deaver: I would hope to see a good storyteller.

Literaturschock: I know, you are asked almost every question again and again but is there any question you are never asked, but you wish people would ask you?

Jeffery Deaver: I think I have been asked every possible question! One question I am asked all the time is, "Where do you get your ideas?". I tell readers that ideas come after many hours of work.

Literaturschock: Is there a book in your own works having a special place in your heart? If so, why?

Jeffery Deaver: I think The Bone Collector will always be special to me, because it is the book that introduced Lincoln Rhyme.

Literaturschock: What do you think is the most difficult and the easiest thing about writing?

Jeffery Deaver: The hardest part of writing is creating the outline. My outlines run several hundred pages. The outline is where I plan for every part of the book. It's important for me to get the plot just right before I begin wiritng the book itself.

Literaturschock: When we can see "The Blue Nowhere" and "The Devil's Teardrop" on screen? If only you could choose the crew: What would be your choice of cast?

Jeffery Deaver: Both of thse books are in development for films, which means the film makers are working on the screenplays and working on getting the financing to make the movies. I'm not sure when either project will reach the screen. As for casting, I can see Harrison Ford as Frank Bishop in The Blue Nowhere. I don;'t really have any casting preferences for The Devil's Teardrop.

Literaturschock: You're currently working on "The Garden of Whispers". Would you give us a little sneak preview?

Jeffery Deaver: I can tell you that my next book will be my first historical novel set in the 1930s. I can't really tell you more than that at the moment.

Literaturschock: Do you know the German publishing date of "The Vanished Man"? Jeffery Deaver - Die Tränen des Teufels

Jeffery Deaver: I'm sorry, but I don't know. You might find out that information by going to the online bookstore Amazon.

Literaturschock: Do you write what ever you wanted to write? Or is there an unwritten idea, which sleeps in your head for years?

Jeffery Deaver: While I am finishing writing a book, my mind is already at work on the next book.

Literaturschock: What do you think it's your secrect? Do you have any advice for wannabe authors?

Jeffery Deaver: I look at writing as any job. I go to work every day and write for eight to ten hours a day. I don't wait for inspiration before I begin writing. As for advice to aspiring writers, I would encourage them to write something every day. It's the only way to become good at the craft of writing.

Literaturschock: Who are some of your favorite writers, and do you find the time to read them? What are you currently reading?

Jeffery Deaver: One of my all time favorites is Thomas Harris (Silence of the Lambs). I don't have a lot of time to do leisure reading these days, but will always make time to read a good thriller.

Literaturschock: Thank you very much again for taking the time for this interview!

Jeffery Deaver: You're welcome! Please let me know if you have any other questions!
