AUTHOR SPOTLIGHT
Neal Baer
In Kill Switch (Kensington, January 2012), author Neal Baer, the former executive producer of ER, makes rich use of the complex mysteries that make both crime and medicine so compelling. The thriller, which he wrote with longtime writing and producing partner Jonathan Greene, follows forensic psychologist Claire Waters, who deals with patients considered untreatable. She soon finds herself paired with a troubled cop as they try to unravel the case of an apparent serial killer. Baer spoke with Forecast from his office in Los Angeles.
Forecast: You’ve spent two decades writing for : television. What inspired you to expand into novels? Neal Baer: It happened through Lydia Wills, our book agent. She said to me several years ago, “Do you have any outlines or ideas for medical thrillers? It would be really interesting if you had some.” At the time, I had this very detailed outline for a movie, but never wrote the script. When I showed her the outline, she called back and said, “Write three chapters.” So we did, and sent her those. And then she said, “Write two more.” So what was an unwritten movie script became the genesis for what is now a 3-book deal with Kensington. FC: How is writing for books different than writing : for television? NB: In television, to get at what someone is thinking, you rely on dialogue, or visual clues. You can only do so much voiceover. What I love about novels is you can get into interior motives in a different way. Actor’s expressions, of course, can be very effective at conveying all of that; novel writing is a different method of exploring a character’s thoughts. The difference is challenging and satisfying. FC: You have an unusual credential among televi: sion producers and writers: You’re also a Harvard Medical School-trained pediatrician. Did you set out to be a doctor or writer? NB: I had a defining moment as a sociology grad student at Harvard; I was happy but still looking for more, but I didn’t know what that “more” was. Then I met a documentary filmmaker, and it changed my life. I sold two documentaries to PBS. I headed down a path I’d never expected, and ended up going to film school. My initial TV episodes and after-school specials had medical elements, maybe because my father was a surgeon. I felt that meant I should be a doctor, and headed to medical school. In my fourth year at Harvard, I had a chance to spend two months working on scripts for (television show) ER. I came to ER with a hundred stories about my life as a medical student, and those two months became seven years. I eventually went back and finished my medical degree, and found a way to entwine my two passions. FC: How does your passion for medicine impact : your writing? NB: Medicine has had a huge impact on my career and life. At Harvard Medical School, we’re taught medicine from a storytelling perspective. We organize our thinking by understanding the patient’s story, not just a gob of facts. There are nuances; we’re forming a plot as we think about the diagnosis. Medicine gives you stories about the human experience. — Interviewed by Emily Achenbaum Harris; photo © Mitch Haaseth FC: Tell us about your writing process, including : your partnership with co-author Jonathan Greene. NB: We’ve been working together for 12 years, since meeting while working on Law & Order: SVU. We hashed out the plot of Kill Switch together over the years and divided up chapters, and give each other notes. To get novel writing done, I go to bed at 8:30 or 9 p.m., and I wake up at 4 a.m. I work until about 7 a.m., then I go to my regular job, where I work on TV writing all day. Research is incredibly important to my writing process. You want to be realistic; readers are really good at detecting things that just aren’t right. Kill Switch is very up to date on advances in medicine. Part of creating Claire involved talking to forensic psychologists to learn what their training was like. I’m interested in the tension between science and faith and emotion, and Claire wrestles with what her training can explain – and what it can’t.
