Karin Slaughter interviews Wanda M. Morris on the Fully Booked Takeover.
On this week’s Fully Booked Takeover, sponsored by Wiley, we welcome special guest host Karin Slaughter and crime writer Wanda M. Morris.
In this new regular feature at the podcast, a beloved bestselling author invites an author whose work they admire for an in-depth conversation—writer to writer. The questions they ask and the subjects they explore are all up to them.
Karin Slaughter is the author of more than 20 instant New York Times bestselling novels, including Pieces of Her, now a No. 1 Netflix original series starring Toni Colette, and 2015 Edgar Award nominee Cop Town. Kirkus writes of her forthcoming novel, After That Night (Morrow/HarperCollins, Aug. 22), “Another violent crime in Atlanta provokes another deep dive into the tormented past of Slaughter’s regulars” (starred review).
She’s joined in conversation by acclaimed crime writer, fellow Georgian, and friend Wanda M. Morris, the author of two novels published by William Morrow: 2021’s All Her Little Secrets, currently under limited series development by Showtime, with Emmy Award–winning actress Uzo Aduba set to executive produce and star; and 2022’s Anywhere You Run, a civil rights–era thriller Kirkus lauds for its “complex characters,” “tense plotting,” and “authentic historical setting” (starred review).
Then editors Laura Simeon, Mahnaz Dar, and Laurie Muchnick share their top picks in books for the week.
