We're kicking off a new series today called Answers, where we ask interesting folks a series of questions and post their answers in short videos (hat tip to The Dish

was gracious enough to be our first interview subject. She's, of course, the author of "Devil's Knot"
and the forthcoming "Dark Spell."
She's also likely had her byline in the pages of the Times
longer than anyone else. Tonight, she'll celebrate the premiere of the film adaption of "Devil's Knot" at the Ron Robinson Theater.

What's the case for cameras in the courtroom
