>• The Today weather man tries his hand at a whodunit.

IS THE BOOK BASED ON YOUR DAY JOB?

The main character's based a little bit on me. But I would never want to kill my executive producer.

WAS WRITING IT HARD?

Much harder than I thought. Authors on the show would say "My characters were speaking to me," and I was like, what a bunch of crock. But I started writing and they wouldn't shut up. My coauthor [Dick Lochte] helped me get organized.

FAVORITE MYSTERY WRITERS?

Walter Mosely, James Patterson. I love that now I'm in their section. Not the same league ... but my book will be in the same area!
