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 over ten years ago, Costa Rica Talk Radio, about my home country, Costa Rica.
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 wanted a podcast that focused on the writing side of the equation by interviewing authors.
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 Dean Koontz, Tess Gerritsen, Russell Blake, Cheryl Bradshaw, Danielle Girard, Wayne Stinnett, John Ellsworth, 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 over twenty years now.
In 2010 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. It’s lots of fun.
I’ve published three thriller novels in my Pete Maddox Series. I also write a cozy mystery series under a pen name.
The third novel in that series, “Odd Jobs”, will be published soon.
