An Authorlink Exclusive AUDIO Interview With David Morrell
Author of 29 books, including his latest SCAVENGER (Vanguard Press 2007)

June 2007

David Morrell is considered by many to be the father of the modern action thriller. The movie character Rambo was based on his award-winning novel First Blood.  David has written 29 books, most of them bestselling novels which have sold more than 18 million copies in 26 languages.

His latest thriller, SCAVENGER, takes us on a desperate high-tech scavenger hunt for a 100-year-old time capsule. Morrell's action sequences are embedded with fascinating historical clues that make SCAVENGER a real page turner. The deep emotional aspects of the novel address the idea that sometimes the past is buried for a reason.

Here David talks about what is perhaps his best-ever new thriller, published by Vanguard Press, 2007, and about the challenges of creating and marketing a novel in today's tough publishing environment. He provides insights into how he develops his concepts, plots, and emotional motivations for his work.
