Lee Goldberg asked James Reasoner a few questions about his productivity, the role his wife plays in the writing process and about outlines.
James Reasoner writes on average eight, that's 8!, books a year and sometimes 12 books a year. He also had to say this about outlines:
I like a six to eight page outline. That's loose enough to allow for some improvisation but detailed enough so that I rarely write myself into a corner. But I've written plenty of books from outlines that are only a page or two long.
