Writer’s Workshop Wednesday: Michael Crichton

Jurassic ParkDisclosureRising SunThe Andromeda StrainCongoThe Lost World: Jurassic ParkNext. These are just a few of the many novels author Michael Crichton has written. Along with fictional books, Crichton has written several non-fiction works, created the TV series ER, and wrote the screenplays for Jurassic ParkTwister, and other films.

He was a brilliant and prolific writer.  In 1993, he had the number one film (Jurassic Park), number one series (ER), and number one bestseller (Disclosure) in the nation. His passion for technology, science, and politics resonates in each of his works.

Sadly, Crichton passed away in 2008, but works and influence on pop culture will always be felt.

Below are some great interviews Crichton did over the years talking about his work and his process.  I am aware that Charlie Rose is on the outs in society right now, but most interviews Crichton did in the 90s were on his show.

Despite his presence, I hope you enjoy them.

See you next week with another great author!
