Interview with Clark Graham, Author of Girl on Honeysuckle Avenue | NewInBooks
What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Girl on Honeysuckle Avenue?
I moved back to my beloved Idaho after retiring. When I drove through town I saw the Honeysuckle Avenue sign. That would make a great title, I thought. Girl on Honeysuckle Avenue. That’s all I had at the time – the title. Later, I began plotting it out. I decided to make the girl mysterious. That’s how the Girl on Honeysuckle Avenue came to be.
If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Girl on Honeysuckle Avenue, what would they be?
Only the Lonely by Roy Orberson.
What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

A spy novel by Susan Cady Allred.
What scene in your book was your favorite to write?
The shootout scene.
Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)
I write five hundred words and then go eat breakfast. Come back and write five hundred more and then go about my day.
