In The Author's Voice: Patricia Cornwell

Fans of New York Times Best Selling Author Patricia Cornwell have, undoubtedly, been anxiously awaiting today’s (November 15, 2016)  release of her latest Kay Scarpetta novel, Chaos.    It’s been nearly three decades since Post Mortem launched the character that has become part of the forensic literary landscape.

WSIU's Jeff Williams recently talked with Cornwell about her latest Scarpetta novel and what keeps her inspired after all of these years.

Chaos is on bookshelves today from Harper Collins.  You can also look for her upcoming book Ripper –  in January.  It's a follow up to Cornwell’s Chasing the Ripper as she continues to build her case as to the identity of the infamous Jack the Ripper.
