Dudley Lynch

Biography

Dudley Lynch has published by-lined articles in 250 periodicals on six continents, including Reader's Digest, Business Week, Newsweek, Fortune Magazine (special sections), The New York Times, Christian Science Monitor and The Economist. His book, Strategy of the Dolphin: Scoring a Win in a Chaotic World (written with a colleague), was a Literary Guild alternative section, has been published in seven languages and made best-seller lists in France, Germany and Austria. Your High-Performance Business Brain was a Macmillan Book Club selection. The President from Texas was the first young-adult biography of Lyndon B. Johnson. His out-of-print work, The Duke of Duval, a political biography, has commanded prices as high as $3,000 each on Amazon.com. BELIEFS CAN BE MURDER, the first of “the Luke McWhorter Mystery” series, is his debut novel.

Dudley attended one of the three church universities in a semi-isolated West Texas community much like the location of this work. (His father was a preacher for more than 50 years for the Churches of Christ, a Southern-based evangelical group.) With two journalism degrees, including a master's degree in mass communications, he also majored as an undergraduate in religion. But he has spent most of his career as a writer and researcher on how the brain handles beliefs and creativity, which is also the focus of his blog, LEAP!psych. He is the president of Brain Technologies Corporation, Gainesville, Florida. For information about his self-help books, go to www.braintechnologies.com.

Smashwords Interview

Q: Who is the ideal reader for your new mystery, BELIEFS CAN BE MURDER?
I'm certain my readers will have much to teach me about that. But the image I've kept in my head is that of a reader who enjoys 1) a “smart read” (meaning a main character who doesn’t talk down—or up—to you) 2) a fast-flowing mystery that never ceases to surprise and 3) a narrative that takes you places in your imagination that require a certain curiosity and mojo to appreciate.
Q: When and where do you like to write?
The “where” is at my office computer. Trying to read my handwriting is a chore, even for me, so I could never compose by hand, as a lot of writers do. And I’m not an early riser, so I usually don’t get to my office until early afternoon. After that, I typically write for about three, four, sometimes five hours. Often, about midnight, I return for an hour or so of editing and rewriting.
