Our occasional series of Q&As with bibliomystery authors continues today with Lorna Barrett, author of the Booktown series from Berkley Prime Crime. The series began in 2008 with Murder is Binding. The most recent entry, from earlier this year, is Murder on the Half Shelf. The seventh book is scheduled for release next year.
