Interview with K.G. Lawrence

What are you working on next?
My next book is the third book in the Proteus Group Series, called Jellyfish. It is a thriller about domestic bioterrorism set in one of my favorite cities, San Francisco.
What's the story behind your latest book?
I created a criminal organization, the Proteus Group, whose goal is power, any kind of power. As this organization spreads it touches the lives of many people. Both WEAR SOMETHING RED and REMBRANDT BE DAMNED are part of this series.
What do your fans mean to you?
While I love writing, without a reader it is hollow. Everyone who reads my books makes it all worthwhile. I look forward to having fans and I am writing my third book with them in mind.
How do you approach cover design?
Finding or creating the right cover is not easy. Fortunately Smashwords has a list of wonderful sites to use. For my latest novel I had a cover created. The image is of New York City with a paintbrush dripping red - is it paint or blood? As my hero, Jaxon is an artist I thought this symbolized both danger and his gift as an artist.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up on the rainy West Coast so I had a lot of time to read. By the time I was a teenager I knew I wanted to write. It has been my passion for years.
