In The Press

If you haven’t yet checked out these articles, here are a few of my appearances in the press from this past year!

John Lescroart keeps the thrills coming
Sacramento Bee, December 2016

John Lescroart opened the front door of his vintage white bungalow in a leaf-strewn Davis neighborhood and welcomed a visitor inside. The house – one of several properties he owns in Northern California – is the innocuous “writing room” he occupies when he’s working on his next book, which is most of the time.

John Lescroart of Davis will have a few things to say
Sacramento Bee, November 2016

THE FALL is centered on “the case of an inner-city girl who plunges to her death from an overpass into traffic below. Did she fall – or was she pushed?” It’s the Sacramento Bee Book Club’s choice for December.

Prolific thriller author John Lescroart loves the life of a professional writer
Savannah Now, February 2016

“You’ve got to show up every day,” he says. “Everyone says I’m so prolific, but I write every day because that is what I do. You don’t get plumber’s block if you’re a plumber. I’m my own boss and I’m always at someone’s beck and call.”

John Lescroart wins Silver Bullet Award
The Davis Enterprise, January 2016

International bestselling novelist and Davis resident John Lescroart says he was “completely bowled over, knocked out, flattered and shocked!” to be informed that he’d won the 2016 Silver Bullet Award.

Greetings from Kauai!

I just stopped by a great bookstore in Kauai called Talk Story Bookstore – it’s the westernmost independent bookstore in the United States! Here’s a picture of my wife, me, and the owners, Ed and Cynthia Justus:

San Francisco Chronicle article on living in Yolo County

Author John Lescroart thrives in Yolo County’s laid-back vibe

“I believe that all of these positive attributes help explain why Yolo County is such a mecca for artists of all types — writers, visual artists, musicians, cooks and winemakers,” he says. “Here the emphasis seems to be on the creation rather than the commercialization of art.”

Check out this new article in the San Francisco Chronicle for a look at what I love about living in Davis, CA, including a list of my favorite Yolo County locations and events! Here are just few of those top picks:

Davis Farmers Market: On Wednesday evenings in the summer, the market feels more like a party than a place to buy groceries. A live band brings the festive atmosphere, while families picnic on the grass. Year-round, the Saturday morning market functions more traditionally, but still offers a great assortment of food and fun. “The quintessential farmers’ market and more.”Fourth and C streets, Davis.

The Avid Reader: The long-standing shop attracts authors of varying degrees of notoriety for readings and book signings as many as three times a week. “A terrific indie bookstore like the ones we used to know.” 617 Second St., Davis; (530) 758-4040.

Plainfield Station: Seemingly in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by trees, sits this “truly funky and original roadhouse with a bar and burgers and attitude to burn.” Expect a barricade of motorcycles on your way in. 23944 County Road 98, Woodland, (530) 668-0207.

Pub Quiz at de Vere’s Irish Pub: The lively bar is consistently the most happening Monday night destination in Davis, thanks to its obscenely popular — and difficult — trivia night. The quiz master is Andy Jones, a UC Davis professor and the city’s poet laureate, whom Lescroart describes as funny, eccentric and brilliant. 217 E St., Davis; (530) 204-5533.

Booklist Gives FATAL Starred Review

Fatal“On its own, this is a terrific stand-alone thriller that melds police procedural with plenty of suspense and action, and it should appeal to Harlan Coben or Gillian Flynn fans.”
