A conversation with Tess Gerritsen

  Hi Readers!   A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to meet Maine author Tess Gerritsen. She’s most known for her book Gravity (1999), and for her crime series Rizzoli & Isles, for which the title crime series on TNT is based. We had a great chat before her book launch event at […]
