We're interviewing David Baldacci about his new book Deliver Us From Evil, which will be out some time in April. Please post questions by April 30th.

I am going to make it back here with some questions, just need to think of a couple!

Greetings from UK.
Does David have an image of the character in his head when he is writing their dialogue and would he want casting approval should a film or tv series be made of the book to preserve that image?

David, you often reference the Frog and the Scorpion fable. Who was your Scorpion? Can you share the circumstance?

Because you create such sympathetic characters, I must ask: how do you keep your characters from morphing into each other as you begin a new writing project? In other words, how do you keep creating new people to populate your books without any retreads? Thanks

Fantastic questions! There are just a few days more to add any questions for David.

Do you feel any of your heroes or villains could possibly exist in the real world, given the opportunity, or do you feel they are more caricatures to help set them apart and make the story more engaging?

I'm curious how he feels about the 1 star reviews of his book on Amazon they are not on the content of the book but a 1 star about the price of the book on Kindle?

How did you get picked to be a part of "The Story of Us". Are you a history buff? Have you ever thought about writing historical fiction?

apr 27, 2010, 11:55am

Which character was the hardest to write? Which one was the easiest? Are any of your characters based on people you know or purely imaginative?

You do a good job of writing characters who have very different perspectives on the world. Have you ever found your opinions changed as a result of writing for a character that you initially disagreed with?

How do you choose the situations your characters are placed in? I've noticed trends in the books of my favorite authors much like design trends on the runway. I'm halfway through Deliver Us From Evil and it's fun to see the connections to other works.

Good afternoon David Baldacci, my family name is Baldi and perhaps in the past we were somehow linked...Quick question: is it easier for yoiu to write a thriller or a novel?

Sorry, but the questions closed on April 30th.
