1 - What's your latest?
SJ Rozan: THE SHANGHAI MOON
2 - Assuming I haven't read it, why should I?
SJ Rozan: It will take you through today's New York, World War II Shanghai, and a chapter in history (the story of the European Jewish refugees who fled to Shanghai) that you probably didn't know existed.
3 - What can you tell us about your main character that you hadn't realized until you answered the question?
SJ Rozan: She -- Lydia Chin -- is beginning to mature, right before my eyes.
4 - What's your favorite scene and why?
SJ Rozan: The one where her cousin saves the day. More than that would be a spoiler, but it's my favorite because I totally didn't see it coming (and it cracks me up, but I'm easily entertained).
5 - What's next?
SJ Rozan: A Bill Smith thriller, where Lydia gets kidnapped by a madman and Bill has to save her by playing the madman's games.
