Susan Kandel discusses her book, “I Dreamed I Married Perry Mason.” She begins by explaining that her book is about a novelist who finds herself wrapped up in a murder mystery. She describes how her main character Cici is writing a biography of Earl Stanley Gardner, who created the Perry Mason mystery novels. Kandel discusses that her next book will focus on the Nancy Drew novels, and that she may possibly write on Agatha Christie in the future. She describes her background in academia, and how she holds a PhD in Art History from UCLA. She ends the interview by talking about how she incorporates real California history into her novel.
