Description
Les Roberts discusses his book, “An Infinite Number of Monkeys.” He begins by explaining that his book is about a private investigator Saxon who helps out his secretary. He talks about Saxon’s loyalty and vulnerability, which make his character more realistic and three-dimensional. He discusses how he came up with the idea for his novel after someone asked him to write a film about an investigator. Roberts talks about his career writing for television and film, and how his first book won a contest for the best new mystery novel. He describes how he did his writing while working full-time during the day.
