The Wharton Journal-Spectator recently published an article about my upcoming presentation at the Wharton County Historical Museum, Monday, March 21 at 10 AM. Come on out.
Chris Rogers is one of few contemporary authors that leave me envious of their craft. Both her storytelling and writing style are as vivid as a painter’s palette; her colorful books capable of appealing to both the general reader and the sophisticate alike.
In Here Lies a Wicked Man, (a Booker Crane Mystery) Chris Rogers handles the genre with an entertainer’s authority. Whereas so much thriller and mystery writing today is so plot driven – basically action and dialogue – Wicked Man’s characters feel like flesh and blood. This is not to say the plot suffers, because it doesn’t. Rather it is enhanced by real humans and not mere props, placed solely to expedite the narrative.
Rogers hits all the pressure points of a good ‘who done it’ without relying on workshop clichés. She accomplishes this with ease.
Chris Rogers is not just a one of modern Texas’ best authors, but the languages’.
Luckily for the reader, (who will be hooked after Here Lies a Wicked Man), her catalog is vast and varied. Good hunting.
