Interview with Ginny Fite, Author of No End of Bad

What genre do you write and why?
I write in the genre the story demands. That may sound odd but the story comes first. Only as I’m writing the story do I realize it’s a mystery or a thriller or it falls in the wide basket of women’s fiction. Often I meet the characters first and then a bit of setting turns up. Sometimes I know immediately, for instance if a dead body lands on the first page, that story is probably going to be a mystery. Sometimes I don’t know for several months where I’m going. This may not be the most efficient method but it works for me. Of my four published novels, three are mysteries and the most recent, No End of Bad, is a thriller. The novel I’m currently working on is women’s fiction with magical realism elements (ghosts!).

Tell us about your latest book.
What would you do if your husband was arrested by the FBI, then died in custody, and it seemed like the whole world was out to get you? Hide? Run! That’s what Margaret Turnbull and her daughter Melissa do in No End of Bad when their whole world literally blows up and there’s no safe place left anywhere. As they run, they discover they’re far more resilient and resourceful than they knew. Helped by people intent on stopping an international drug cartel with connections all the way up to senior personnel in the White House, they try to hold a funeral service only to be attacked again.

Chock full of bad guys and good guys, No End of Bad features strong female characters who know what they want and are determined to do whatever it takes to get it.

What formats is the book available in?
No End of Bad is available in print and epub.

Who are your favourite authors?
Toni Morrison, Joyce Carol Oates, Kate Atkinson, Alice Hoffman, Louise Erdrich, Jhumpa Lahiri

Interview with Ginny Fite, Author of No End of BadWhat's the best thing about being a writer?
Writing. Living in my head. Imagining all sorts of things. Putting words on paper and seeing the things I imagined come to life. Having readers say to me, “I loved your book.”

Where can people find out more about you and your writing?
I have a website, and a Facebook page, where people can learn more about me and my writing

Who is your favourite character in your book and why?
My favorite character in No End of Bad is Melissa, fifteen years old, nerdy, tomboyish, beautiful in her own way, and daring. If I’d had a daughter, I would want her to be like Melissa.

Where can a reader purchase your book?
No End of Bad is available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, kobo, and wherever books are sold.

What is your work in progress? Tell us about it.
I’m in the last phases of completing a novel titled Clarinda in which recently widowed Sylvie Andrus and her young son, alone in a new town far from home, must solve a two-century old mystery to rid themselves of the ghost who haunts them. The story is set in a tiny river town near Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay. I can almost hear the gulls squawking as I type this.

What are you currently reading?
I’m currently reading, and loving, Gail Honeyman’s extraordinary Eleanor Oliphant iscompletely fine.
