This page answers questions I hear most frequently from authors.
What are you looking for?
I'm particularly looking for narrative non-fiction; history; current events.
Other areas of particular interest in non-fiction are: justice and death penalty issues; African politics; contemporary art; contemporary music; and, how-to books.
I'm also actively looking for high-concept thrillers.
Just FYI, I do not consider books that deal with assassinating the US President as a major theme.
