Sarah asked Chris Bohjalian:

I loved your novel, THE NIGHT STRANGERS. It caused me to go out an buy a whole stack of your work, which (sorry) are all sitting next to my bed in my to read pile. I swear I'll get to them all! Do you have any advice for anyone trying to make it in the writing world?

Chris Bohjalian No worries that the books are in a stack by your bed. I have small skyscrapers just like that all over my house.

But I appreciate your kind words immensely. Thank you.

I can't tell from your question if you are interested in tips on writing or tips on (for instance) finding an agent.

I'll guess the latter and hope I'm correct.

So, here is a link to my ten tips for aspiring writers. Fingers crossed they help!

All the best,

Chris B.
