David Bell is the USA Today-bestselling author of eight suspense novels from Berkley/Penguin, including Somebody's Daughter, Bring Her Home, Since She Went Away, Somebody I Used to Know, The Forgotten Girl, Never Come Back, The Hiding Place, and Cemetary Girl. His new psychological thriller, Layover, is due out July 2. 

He is an associate professor of English at Western Kentucky University where he directs the MFA program in creative writing. A native of Cincinnati, Ohio, he spends his free time rooting for the Reds and Bengals, and confusing fellow fans by being named David Bell. He lives in Bowling Green, Kentucky, with his wife, writer Molly McCaffrey. 

On July 8, Jessica Strawser is hosting "In Conversation" with Bell at Joseph-Beth Booksellers at 7 p.m. Readers can listen to the two authors chat and pick up signed copies of both of their novels. 

In this episode of “Inside the Writer’s Head,” our writer-in-residence host Jessica Strawser chats with David about the page-turning premise of Layover—which begins with a memorable encounter in an airport—what makes a good thriller, the perks of being married to a fellow writer, and much more.
