“It’s interesting to think about readers around the world being able to find these books about a chemistry teacher turned homicide detective in Seattle, Washington. And I think that’s the global power of stories. Great stories are something that appeals to everyone. Figuring out the best ways that we can make it that anyone who wants to can pick up these books is really something we’re working toward.”
