A Goofy Taste for Vigilantism: an Interview with Sophie Littlefield

We want to make sure that you didn't miss the brief interview that Publishers Weekly held with domestic crime writer and Edgar-finalist, Sophie Littlefield.

A BAD DAY FOR SCANDAL is the latest in Littlefield's humorous and gutsy series featuring vigilante Stella Hardesty (following A BAD DAY FOR SORRY, A BAD DAY FOR PRETTY). Publishers Weekly says, "Littlefield's eccentric cast of characters grows richer with each book, and Stella continues to dazzle with her wit, charm, and ease with firearms." Library Journal says, "This caper is more fun than eating cotton candy on a Ferris wheel." We agree!

Publishers Weekly caught up with Littlefield to ask her a few quick questions about her feisty series such as, where did the idea of Stella come from? How do you keep Stella's vigilantism from alienating readers? And, how do you balance the violence with humor?

Read the full interview over at Publishers Weekly.

A BAD DAY FOR SCANDAL will be available June 21, 2011 from Minotaur.
