‘Bones’ writer Kathy Reichs answers your questions about her famed series

Kathy Reichs is one of the most popular writers of crime fiction in North America, thanks to her intrepid — and always funny — creation, forensic anthropologist Temperance Brennan and “Bones,” the television series that grew out of her novels.

Tempe Brennan first bolted into our imaginations in 1998 in the book “Déjà Dead” and she continues to hold a place in our hearts and on our bookshelves. Tempe’s work on both sides of the border — in the U.S., and in Canada — gives her a special spot in the Canadian mystery canon.

And this summer marks an important anniversary: the release of the 20th Tempe Brennan book, “The Bone Code.”

Kathy Reichs sits down in a one-on-one interview with the Star’s Books Editor, Deborah Dundas, to talk about 20 volumes of Temperance Brennan, forensics and how she keeps her series fresh.
