Carol Doria asked Kathy Reichs:

I've read some of the Bones books, and I'm also a huge fan of the TV show. The character of Temperance Brennan is quite different in the television version than she is in the literary version. How do you feel about your character's changes, and do you have a preference as to which Temperance you like better?

Kathy Reichs The Tempe Brennan of Bones is younger than the character in my novels, and is single without children. I like to think of the TV series as somewhat of a prequel to my novels. Emily Deschanel has been a dream casting, and I couldn't be happier with how she portrays the character on Bones.
