[NOTE: This is part of a series of Q&As with the Shirley Jackson Award nominees.]
Andrew Pyper is the author of six internationally bestselling novels as well as Kiss Me, a collection of short stories. His first novel, Lost Girls, was a New York Times Notable Book and New York Times bestseller. This was followed by The Trade Mission, The Wildfire Season, The Killing Circle (a New York Times Crime Novel of the Year), The Guardians and, most recently, The Demonologist, which Amazon selected as one of the 20 Best Books of the Year. He lives in Toronto.
Andrew kindly answered a few of my questions about The Demonologist, which has been nominated for Best Novel!
