"Heart of a Killer" is Maine author David Rosenfelt's latest mystery novel, and the fourth of his stand-alone books.

My wife took a look at the book and said she liked it, so I finished it and sent it off to a publisher, and I got a contract with sequels.
The whole process took about six or seven weeks.
Q: Do you know how jealous all the would-be writers out there are?
A: Yes. I had an advantage because I already had an agent for the film work, and it was just lucky because I was ignorant about the process of being a writer. Now I had to do a series, and you have to do an outline of the sequels, and I didn't know how to do an outline. I didn't even know it was a mystery. I thought it was a courtroom drama, but they sold it to Mysterious Press. That's how I found out it was a mystery.
Q: Do you have any signings or appearances scheduled?
A: Not locally. I am leaving for some in Florida and Arizona. I do have a lot of appearances planned for the next Andy book, "Leader of the Pack," which comes out in July.
