Florida Times Union features “Where The River Ends”

Southern Living “Read of the Month”

“When Crickets Cry manages to deliver a poetic love story, a heart-pounding medical thriller, and a spiritual epiphany, all while smoothly introducing charming characters and twists that keep the pages turning.”

The April 2006 Edition of Southern Living chose Crickets as their “Read of the Month.”

Frank Peretti

As a kid, reading was not my strongsuit. I was too antsy. Found it hard to sit still. When I finally did, I fell in love with Louis L’Amour, J.R.R. Tolkien, Mark Twain, and others. In high school, I stumbled upon a ski-maker from Oregon, or some such place, who had written a book called, This Present Darkness. I think I read it in a day. It made an impression then and still does. Recently, Frank was interviewed in Crosswalk.com and he talked about what he’s currently reading.

Crosswalk.com: What fiction writers do you like right now? Obviously Ted Dekker, right?

Peretti: [Laughing] Sure. I’ve read just about everything Michael Crichton has written. I enjoy his stuff; it’s real cinematic, and it’s inspired. He writes this technical stuff, which most of the time I find fascinating. I like the way he structures his stories, so he’s a big influence on me. Another writer I read is published by Westbow - Charles Martin. He wrote the book The Dead Don’t Dance. I loved that book. It was a beautiful tapestry, or beautiful painting of a character… of where he lived … it was such a wonderful refreshing glimpse into the heart of this character that I just savored every moment of that book. I was ready for that, you know, you get into this thriller genre and action genre, you start shallowing out. It just starts to be same old, same old; you just miss a really good read, a real heart deep. I try to get heart-deep and I think I did when I did Visitation. Right now I’m reading all there is to know about making movies. I want to be a director and a screenwriter, so that’s what I’m studying right now.

Frank, you’re a great encouragement to me. Thank you, a second time.
