Robert Eversz discusses his book, “Digging James Dean.” He begins by explaining that this is the fourth book in his Nina Zero series. He details how his heroine, ex-convict Mary Alice Baker, who now goes by the name Nina Zero, is working as a tabloid photographer for the “Scandal Times.” Eversz explains that in the book Zero investigates a lead that takes her to Indiana, where thieves have broken into James Dean’s grave and stolen some of his bones. During her investigation Zero finds herself involved with a cult called the Church of Divine Thespians who are involved in trading relics from old movie stars and promise to create new stars of naive youth who aspire to stardom. Eversz goes on to discuss some of his prior books and where he plans to take the Nina Zero series. He also shares some of his own background and explains why he works best when he is living in remote locals abroad.
