Acclaimed bestseller Karen Cleveland stepped into the Interrogation Room, just to clear up a few things. Karen worked as an analyst at CIA, and the bulk of her work there was in counterterrorism. She has master’s degrees from Trinity College Dublin, where she studied as a Fulbright Scholar, and from Harvard University. Her first novel, NEED TO KNOW, was a finalist for the ITW Thriller Award, and her writing has been praised by the likes of Lee Child and John Grisham. Her latest book, KEEP YOU CLOSE, just released last month.

In this episode, Karen and Writers On The Beat host Gavin Reese discuss her motivations and experience at CIA; her deliberately crafted writing style and voice; the time Universal bought her movie rights; and her love of Nate The Great.
