Harlan Coben // Novels, Netflix and normalcy in New Jersey Seize the Yay

    • Society & Culture

I'm so excited about this week's episode because, as most of you know, I'm a die-hard crime fiction reader so I'm fangirling a bit over our guest - the wonderful Harlan Coben. As much as I consume crime novels, movies and TV shows, I've never actually met or spoken to one of the many authors I admire so I was bowled right over when Harlan agreed to join the show from New Jersey.

To many of you, he probably needs no introduction, but if you didn't already know, Harlan is the #1 New York Times author of thirty one novels with over 70 million books in print worldwide published in 43 languages around the globe. If you haven't watched Netflix hits Safe or The Stranger yet, they're up there with my favourite shows and both are from Harlan to add to the many other screen adaptions of his work.

As part of his 14 book deal with Netflix, he has another series coming, The Woods, so keep an eye out for that. I just finished his latest book too, The Boy From The Woods, in one day - I couldn't put it down - and was thrilled to hear from the man himself about the many years it took to make it as an author, his process for writing, his dinners with American Presidents and his normal New Jersey life as a dad. I hope you enjoy!
