Eliot Pattison interviewed by Cherilyn Parsons

Few successful mystery authors are also prominent human rights advocates, notes a recent profile of Eliot Pattison in Publishers Weekly. Honored with Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award for “The Skull Mantra,” the first novel in his bestselling series set in Tibet, Pattison received Tibet House’s U.S. Art of Freedom Award a few years (and books) later. Pattison joins us upon the publication of “Bones of the Earth,” the 10th and final book in the bestselling Inspector Shan Tao Yun series, which uses the lens of mystery fiction to tell the world about the harsh treatment of Tibetans under Chinese rule. Come meet this highly unusual mystery master.
