I’ve been a fan of podcasts for ten years (the ancient times when it comes to podcasting).
I even hosted another semi-popular podcast, Costa Rica Talk Radio, about my home country, Costa Rica, from 2007-2009.
There are a lot of great podcasts on writing out there, but most of those focus on the business/marketing side of being an author.
I longed for a Charlie Rose type author interview podcast that focuses on the writing, so I decided to start my own author interview podcast.
In order to keep this podcast focused and aimed towards fans of genre fiction, I decided to interview authors that are writing and publishing in the genre that I love to read and write: the thriller, mystery, and suspense genre and its many sub-genres.
I’ve had the pleasure of interviewing Amazon, New York Times, and USA Today bestselling authors like Russell Blake, Cheryl Bradshaw, Danielle Girard, Wayne Stinnett, Jennifer Chase, Jeff Menapace, and many other wonderful authors (with more to come).
You can peruse this website for my author interviews. There is also an “Author Search” function on the right-handed sidebar (if you’re looking for someone in particular).
I was born in San José, Costa Rica, and I grew up there and in Caracas, Venezuela. I moved to the United States (Minnesota) for college where I met my future wife, Jennifer.
We’ve been married for twenty years now!
A few years ago we moved from Minneapolis, Minnesota to San Francisco, California with our three dogs (my wife was asked to relocate there for work).
We love living in such a historical, quirky, and beautiful city like San Francisco. We even live on one of those iconic San Francisco street (a hill with a 17% grade that doesn’t even make it into the top ten of most steep streets in the city).
The street is so steep that if you drop a soda can it will roll on down to the Embarcadero. It’s where you’ll find me thinking about a story or scene idea while being pulled down those streets by my ferocious and wild beasts:
If you visit San Francisco and you’re a Dashiell Hammett fan, take the walking tour. Lots of fun.
The third novel in that series, “Odd Jobs”, will be published soon.
I’m currently writing two other novels outside of the Maddox Series.
One is the story of a KGB-era assassin who was left forgotten in the U.S. after the fall of the Soviet Union. When two determined cold case detectives from Washington, D.C. begin investigating the death of a family back in 1992, they trigger the forgotten spy to come out of the cold.
The second one is my first police procedural crime thriller with the action taking place in my home country of Costa Rica.
