Gillian Flynn – Queen of Dark
Bill's Blog Shorts: Check 'em out. You never know what's in 'em.
Of the four authors I've listed in my Fab Four, Ms. Flynn is the one I'd most like to meet for a glass of wine and conversation. In a public place. With no Sharp Objects on the table. And witnesses. Not only is she a superlative writer, she repeatedly answers the question that men now wish they had never asked, "what are women really thinking?" Holy Hades! To every woman I ever dated – or married – or passed on the street – forgive me! So why meet her? Because she has so much talent I want to be nearby when some of it spills out. Also because I'm the type of guy who jumps out of airplanes, rides motorcycles, and runs around the room holding scissors – I love danger.
