This is an interview with Tim Dorsey, bestselling author of The Big Bamboo, Cadillac Beach, and his newest from the HarperCollins William Morrow imprint, Gator a-Go-Go. Gator is a wild and crazy romp following the Spring Break Brigade as they tear up the beaches in Florida.

Dorsey (a former Tampa Tribune copy editor), who no longer reports on crime, appeared at the WordSmitten Writing Workshop at the St. Petersburg College West Library to conduct a capers and crime session for crime novelists.

TIM DORSEY audio excerpt: “You gotta let readers know, via the titles, that this is Florida. It’s definitely way off center. You’re not gonna get your regular read.” 

WordSmitten LogoKate Sullivan is the editor and host of WordSmitten Media, a group of journalists who began reporting on the book publishing industry in 1999 beginning with its online site, www.WordSmitten.com (the people, the books, the business of writing). The site provides insider reports on literary agents, editors, and book publishing executives and events. That was fun, and they decided to create www.wordsmittenmedia.com, to expand their services. So, we they have www.WordSmittenMedia.com for  clients and the “classic” www.WordSmitten.com, as a gateway for writers who want to be professionally published by mainstream New York City book publishers.
