A big thank you to Janet Lynn and Will Zeilinger for inviting me to participate on their YouTube channel “Chatting with Authors.” We discussed short story writing and the novel-in-stories concept. I hate listening to myself talk (and especially watching myself) so hopefully I’m making sense!
The Faking of the President comes out April 21, 2020 but if you’re curious who is in this anthology (besides me!), check out this fun Q&A. Three Rooms Press asked us TFOP “cabinet members” why we chose our specific president to write about and who our favorite president is. Find out the answers by clicking on the cover below!
Vancouver crime fiction author Dietrich Kalteis hosts me over at his blog Off the Cuff today. He’s the talented author of Triggerfish, House of Blazes, and Zero Avenue. We were both in Short Stack Books’ 80’s anthology Fast Women and Neon Lights. I first met him at a Noir at the Bar here in L.A. a couple years ago and enjoyed meeting a fellow Canadian (I was born in Vancouver and most of my mom’s family lives there). Plus he’s a super cool dude.
Check out the interview! Dietrich Kalteis: Off the Cuff
I’m up today chatting with Jesse Rawlins over at Story & Grit. Jesse is launching a new feature called Ink-Quisitions where she interviews various crime fiction authors. And I’m her first victim! It was a lot of fun as we discussed FINN, my contribution to the Johnny Cash collection, “Missouri Waltz,” and my favorite South Bay eats.
Check it out!
I’m up today on Steph Post’s blog where she features mini interviews with authors. It’s called Book Bites: Short and Sweet Interview for Readers on the Go. I answer 5 questions and if you’re curious what research didn’t make it into FINN, come check it out!
And if you’re looking for a great Southern crime fiction noir, check out Steph’s latest release, WALK IN THE FIRE. Just got my copy and I can’t wait to dig into it.
I’m up today over at Digital Media Ghost talking about my influences and why I write what I write.
Will “the Thrill” Viharo is a prolific and talented writer and the host / organizer of Noir at the Bar in Seattle. I’ll be there August 5th at an epic LA v. Seattle read-off!
Thank you, Will, for the opportunity and interview!
I’m up today at the Writers’ Chateau with fellow writer, Lisette Brodey. She sprinkles in some unusual personal questions with the writer craft / process stuff which made for a fun interview. Thanks, Lisette!
Also, if you’re so inclined, there’s a fun post up today on S.W. Lauden’s blog where he re-posts a few of his favorite author quotes of 2016, including one from me!
