The Book Case Blog | Book Reviews, Author Interviews, Book Blogs Donald Harstad worked for 26 years as deputy sheriff and chief investigator for the police department of Clayton County, Iowa. Harstad transforms those experiences into thrilling mysteries with his popular Carl Houseman series. The sixth in the series, November Rain, finds Houseman far from his usual heartland setting, as he travels to the UK to consult on a kidnapping case—and to protect his own daughter. In a guest post, Harstad shares a bit of the real-life inspiration behind November Rain. Guest post by Donald Harstad I’ve written six novels about a fictional deputy sheriff named Carl Houseman, set in a fictional county in northeast Iowa. I certainly never thought I would write a book until I actually wrote my first. Scenarios. The first officer arrived 19 minutes after I called. That’s where Eleven Days, my first novel, had originated. For my latest, November Rain (Crooked Lane Books), I send Carl to London for an assist in a homicide investigation. Thanks, Donald!
