Meet the Writers
Bestselling mystery maven Donna Leon blends the intrigue and passion of the ancient city of Venice (her beloved adopted home) with cutting-edge detective work in her series featuring Commissario Guido Brunetti. Leon tells us that she prefers to work on her writing solo -- writing groups are not for her. "I have to write the book, not the other people," she reasons. "That's like asking somebody to say, 'I'm going to write a string quartet -- what do you think my theme should be?' No -- I decide!" she laughs
