Back in 2006, the Greg Haidl case was big news here in these parts–Newport Beach, Newport Coast, Corona del Mar–and in perhaps all of Orange County. I followed the story, fascinated and sickened by how what happened could have happened. This year novelist Victoria Patterson, who went to high school at Corona del Mar High, where my son graduated from, published her novel The Little Brother, inspired by the case. She’s been on Writers on Writers with me, a featured author at the Pen on Fire Speaker Series, and will visit with my private studio workshop tonight. Here is an interview I did with her for the Los Angeles Review of Books.
