Deadly Lullaby by Robert McClure featured on Plain Talk BM
The virtual book tour for crime fiction thriller, Deadly Lullaby, published by Penguin-Random House, made a stop with Plain Talk BM yesterday for an interview with its author, Robert McClure. In his Plain Talk BM interview, titled “10Q with Robert McClure“, McClure describes his writing journey, starting with law school. There, he published a few scholarly articles, one titled “Thy Shalt Not Kill (Thy Spouse): A Recent Exception to the ERISA Pre-emption Doctrine,” which McClure says, “should have given me a clue where it was all headed . . . .”
McClure talks about the day his wife insisted he quit his busy law practice for a little while to focus on his fiction writing. He met success not long afterward with publication of his first short story. This was followed by other short stories that eventually led to novel writing. In the interview, McClure describes the different challenge posed by novel writing.
When asked what readers can take away from Deadly Lullaby, McClure says:
Babe Crucci, one of my two protagonists, poses the life theme very early on in the book, something he says he “knows beyond all else”: “A son is the product of his father’s labors—or the lack thereof—and for that reason a father’s love for his son depends on nothing except that his son is his son.”
