Huffington Post: 'Vicious Circle,’ A Conversation with C.J. Box
March 22, 2017
Joe Pickett is unlike many contemporary thriller protagonists. He’s happily married; is a good father; doesn’t have a dark past; works hard; and is very honest. What do you feel makes him such a beloved fictional character?
I think it’s because he’s real and he’s also flawed. Therefore, the reader has empathy for him. The reader knows he can screw things up and something bad can happen to him and his family. I hope it draws the reader in more because it’s easy to see one’s self in his situation. A reader can easily identify with Joe.

Another prolific writer at Southern Voices was C.J. Box, who lives in Wyoming. He has written 22 books, 17 of which have been a series about a Wyoming game warden named Joe Pickett. Over 10 million copies of his books have been sold in the United States, and his books also have been translated into 27 languages and optioned for film and TV.
Box said he was an avid reader growing up and spent a lot of time in the library as a child. He always dreamed about writing a book and seeing it on the library shelves or in the hands of someone on an airplane. “Both of those things have occurred,” he said.
