James Lee Burke- Creole Belle

I'll keep this brief. CREOLE BELLE is James Lee Burke's 31st novel, the 19th featuring Dave Robicheaux. It is a brilliant novel featuring the characters readers have come to know and love. I have no adjectives left to describe Mr. Burke's work.

If you are a reader, an aspiring writer, or a person interested in the creative mind I urge you to listen to this, my ninth interview with Mr. Burke. The interview is 40 minutes long- the last 15 minutes are magical. Mr. Burke explains the nature of creativity in a way that I have never heard it discussed before.

This the chance for you, the listener, to hear James Lee Burke discuss his work. We also discuss Hemingway, Faulkner, Mozart, and Tennessee Williams. Burke is an important American writer. Technology allows me to bring his voice and thoughts to you in a longer format than we are accustomed to.

Do yourself a favor and turn off your cell phone, turn off the TV, and listen to a writer who at the of 75 is writing at the peak of his powers. LISTEN TO the interview.
