It's time for trivia and this weeks host is...J.J. Hensley! I am thrilled to have J.J. with us today. You can find J.J. on Facebook at www.facebook.com/hensleybooks Good Luck everyone!
Hi! I’m J.J. Hensley, the author of Resolve, Measure Twice, Chalk’s Outline as well as some shorter works. Thanks to Shelley for hosting a little spring time trivia and letting me take part. I thought I’d throw in a few questions about my books and maybe a random one just for fun. If you haven’t read my books, then feel free to hazard some wild guesses. It will be fun for me to use those answers to fill in the storylines. You know… like a crime fiction version of Mad Libs. I’ll even toss in a random trivia question related to my former profession – law enforcement. The winner receives a sign copy of my thriller, Measure Twice (or an ebook version if preferred).
1. In Resolve, Cyprus Keller works at a fictitious university in Pittsburgh. What is the name of the university?
2. In Measure Twice, homicide detective Jackson Channing gets a new partner. What is her name?
3. In Chalk’s Outline, Cyprus Keller and Jackson Channing meet and get off to a bit of a rough start. What is it that Channing does to Keller’s home that creates some tension?
4. Resolve is set against the backdrop of the Pittsburgh Marathon. When Cyprus Keller runs, what does he tend to snack on to maintain his strength?
RANDOM QUESTION: Where does the term “cop” come from? (two possible answers)
