This month, June spoke about the research a historical novelist does, that her own research takes her to unexpected places. When writing “The Brother,” the second story in her upcoming book THE DEADLIEST DECEPTIONS, she needed to find out how, without DNA, dental records, and fingerprints, they identified a dead body. With careful and accurate research findings, she not only entertains her readers with a riveting story , but she puts them in a time machine that takes them back 2000 years.
June spoke about her next book, THE DEADLIEST DECEPTIONS, a collection of Miriam bat Isaac short stories coming out in 2022. In particular, she spoke about the first story, “Believing is Seeing,” an example of a locked-room murder mystery. This subgenre of detective fiction features a crime that takes place in an inaccessible area, not necessarily a locked room but anyplace where the perpetrator could not have gotten in or out without being detected. The host, Ron Clark, invited her back soon.
