Samantha Downing

In this week's BookMark, host Susan Larson catches up with novelist Samantha Downing, who's making publishing news with a film sale of her first novel, "My Lovely Wife"; a second novel, "He Started It,"  just out; and a seven-figure deal for her next three books.

This week, Susan talks with New Orleans writer Samantha Downing, author of the chilling new thriller, “My Lovely Wife,” the story of a married couple who spice up their love life with serial killing. And we hear from University of New Orleans Creative Writing Workshop graduate Bryan Washington, author of the brilliant new short story collection, “Lot.” Both will be in attendance at the Tennessee Williams/New Orleans Literary Festival March 27-31.
