Today I’m a guest over at the Wrong Place, Write Crime podcast with the prolific and talented Frank Zafiro. I first met Frank at Noir at the Bar in Seattle in 2015 where we both read. This is the first time we’ve had a chance to chat since then. I must admit I was extremely nervous to be the guest of an hour-long podcast (don’t worry, I don’t talk the whole time) but Frank has a very relaxing easygoing way about him and I ended up actually having fun. There are also book recommendations from booksellers across the country as well as Eric Campbell from Down & Out Books. I’ve been tuning in since Episode 1 and it’s a great informative podcast on all things crime fiction. Thank you for having me, Frank!
Today I’m interviewing the always charismatic Danny Gardner over at Los Angeles Review of Books. Danny is an author, screenwriter, comedian, director, and sometimes philosopher. His debut novel, A NEGRO AND AN OFAY, is out now with Down & Out Books and it’s one helluva read.
Today sixteen contributors will read a brief excerpt from their story in the latest Sisters in Crime / LA anthology, LAST RESORT. That’s every single contributor! Plus two editors will be there along with our chapter prez. I’ll read a brief excerpt from “Nut Job” as well as answer any Q&A our chapter prez throws at us. It should be a fun time and I’m excited to check out a new bookstore. Can you believe I’ve never been to Vroman’s? Yeah, me neither.
