After being late to pick up her kids at daycare one too many times, Kovac left television to start a writing career. Now she writes psychological thrillers set in Washington, DC.
Kovac's debut novel is The Cutaway.
Recently I asked the author about what she was reading. Her reply:
As of this writing, which is less than one week from the pub date of my debut novel, I’m a hot mess. My brain is pinging all over the place. Last minute tasks. All the time worries, including: will there be enough wine and beer at the launch? If not, will anyone show up? Reading is what calms me, yet it’s unfair to try any new authors, because I’m not in the right frame of mind. It’s not fair to the writer. What I need is a Joe Finder book. His writing is like a high-performance luxury car: it moves fast and carries you away before you know it, and it’s smooth, you feel none of the bumps. Joe Finder never lets me down. The book on my bedside table is Guilty Minds, which is more of a guilty pleasure, because it takes place in Washington DC, and I’m a DC-girl, and it’s fun to watch how the big guys write the District.Visit Christina Kovac's website.
