FORT KNOX, Ky.New York Times bestselling author Elizabeth George will discuss her new work Mastering the Process: From Idea to Novel and takes questions about it April 6, beginning at 6 p.m., as part of the Barr Memorial Library’s author series.

George is one of the most beloved mystery writers of the last two decades. The books in her Inspector Lynley series are mainstays on bestseller lists across the country, with each installment garnering rave reviews — an incredible feat for an American writer tackling British crime fiction.

George’s novels feature characters who have grown and evolved throughout the series, picturesque English settings, and intricate plot twists that keep readers turning the pages. At events, she is often asked, “How do you do it?” In Mastering the Process: From Idea to Novel she shares the method for researching, outlining and writing that she has perfected over the course of writing dozens of books.

George is the New York Times bestselling author of 20 psychological suspense novels, four young adult novels, one book of nonfiction, and two short-story collections. Her work has been honored with the Anthony and Agatha awards, two Edgar nominations, and both France's and Germany's first prize for crime fiction.

She has taught creative writing internationally and is the recipient of an honorary doctorate in humane letters and an honorary MFA in creative writing. She lives in Seattle, Washington.
