An Interview with Laura Griffin

Elise Cooper: Why did you decide to write a series centered on the SEAL community? Laura Griffin: I first became interested after reading some autobiographical books written by SEALs. I decided to have a SEAL character in the book, Beyond Limits, from my “Tracer Series.” I was lucky enough to view the training area in Coronado, touring the base and speaking with some retired SEALs.

Q&A with Steve Havill, Easy Errors

1) While EASY ERRORS is the 22nd in the Posadas County series, which you launched in 1991, it’s also the first in the series–chronologically. What gave you the idea to place this book back in 1986, before the official start of the series? This is the wonderful thing about loyal readers. The first prequel I did, telling the story of Estelle Reyes-Guzman’s first day on the job, ONE PERFECT SHOT, was written by request.
