Jeez. Even I do better than that. And I’m no O’Nan.
The article explains, “Part of the reason, Mr. O’Nan acknowledged, may be that he experiments with genre, form and tone. He has written thrillers, horror and historical fiction, and followed a novel of postmodern irony with straightforward realist fiction. “No two consecutive books that I have worked on have been alike,” he said.” ….“The success of “Faithful” means that Mr. O’Nan can now make his living as a writer, although he still drives a 1995 metallic copper pearl (translation: orange) Mitsubishi Eclipse that rattles on the highway.”
I guess there are two takeaway messages here. One: write the same kind of book over and over. And two: if you are given a chance to collaborate with Stephen King, go for it!
