TALKING WITH BRAD MELTZER

Sunday, 20 January 2013 04:19 meltzerbrad_fifthassassin
A killer re-creates the crimes of presidential assassins in The Fifth Assassin, the latest thriller from Brad Meltzer.

True to form, Meltzer peppers myriad historical facts in this novel. Meltzer’s work includes the novels The Inner Circle and The Book of Lies; five comic books, including the Eisner Award-winning Justice League of America; two nonfiction books; and is the host of Brad Meltzer’s Decoded on the History Channel.

We caught up with Meltzer just before he launched his book tour. For other questions, visit the interview we did for the Sun Sentinel.

The Fifth Assassin is your second novel featuring young archivist Beecher White; will there be more?
That's certainly the goal.

An archivist hardly seems like the stuff of heroes; what makes Beecher a hero?
It's funny you say that. Someone else just said that. And I'm so nerdy, I didn't even realize that archivists are considered nerdy. I just wanted a hero I hadn't seen before. A real person. From that, Beecher was born.

In addition to your thrillers, you¹ve written 5 comic books and two nonfiction books. You also are a co-creators of the TV show, Jack & Bobby and host Brad Meltzer¹s Decoded on the History Channel. When do you sleep?
What is this 'sleep' you speak of?

What¹s the best thing about being an author?
Talking to my imaginary friends.

What¹s the worst thing?
When they answer back.

On your web site, you also have two very funny videos that are self-deprecating about the book business: Everyone Hates Brad Meltzer and Books Vs. McDonalds Happy Meals. Why?
You kidding? Y'know how much therapy those things saved me from? Maybe the best video we've ever put out there [is Everyone Hates Brad Meltzer].
