My Radio Show/Podcast – Second Sunday Books

Second Sunday Books

I began hosting Second Sunday Books, a talk show on the Authors on the Air network, in January, 2015. After a hiatus, Second Sunday Books is once again a happy member of Authors on the Air.

I broadcast on the second Sunday of every month, and the shows are turned into podcasts afterwards, so you can listen at your leisure. Each show is about 45 minutes and will be available as long as the internet is.

Below are my guests (in reverse chronological order) thus far, including a few “special” shows recorded at various crime fiction and thriller conferences. If you have an idea for a show or guest I  should interview, please contact me through my website. Crime Fiction, True Crime, Wall Street Crime, International Crime—they’re all fair game.

Enjoy the podcasts, and “like” the Second Sunday Books Facebook page to stay up to date!
