On today's 87th episode of The Thriller Zone, I'm stoked to welcome national bestselling author Nick Petrie to the show. His runaway hit, The Runaway (sorry, I couldn't help myself) is one of those rare books you just have a hard time putting down. Seriously, I devoured it in record time. The only bad thing? I didn't want it to end. Nick is an accomplished writer of the Peter Ash Series, someone who Lee Child has said, "Lots of characters get compared to my own Jack Reacher, but Peter Ash is the real deal." Some mighty high praise coming from the legendary Lee Child. Join us as Nick shares the journey of The Runaway, but it's his deep insights as to what it takes to become a number one bestseller that both impressed me, and will surely leave you thinking. READ THIS BOOK, and then follow him to learn when his next books will be released.

Adam Hamdy, the author of The Other Side of Night
1:24:55On today's 96th Episode of The Thriller Zone, I'm 101% jazzed to welcome THE Adam Hamdy, author of many epic thrillers, and the very latest The Other Side of Night. In this show, Adam and I of course chat about the book, we refer to some of his other books, much different than this one, but we also veer off the beaten path. Several times. And for me? Those "off the beaten path" moments are among my very favorite. Why? Because it's "real conversation" from two "dudes" who greatly admire one another and enjoy a good chat. Adam also took this show a step further for me. How? He introduced me to not one, or two, but THREE other authors, none of whom I'd ever heard of before. They are: Anthony Horowitz, author of kids books, adult books, graphic novels and more. Link: https://anthonyhorowitz.com And yes, we're hoping to get him on TheThrillerZone Podcast. Rudolph "Rudy "Vrba, who wrote, "I Escaped from Auschwitz." Link: https://tinyurl.com/RudyVrbaBook Dean Buonomano, author of "Your Brain is a Time Machine." Link: https://tinyurl.com/BrainTimeMachine Thank you, Adam. I've purchased two of the three, and have the third coming to my library soon. There's more to unbox in this show, as Adam and I travel down the paths of several obscure topics, from our favorite vintage t-shirts, and why dudes like us enjoy buying several copies of a shirt we particularly adore. We chat at length about his new home in Maritius, which is an African island in the Indian Ocean, about as far away from "standard civilization" as one can get. But that's grand, isn't it? Not to mention WAY cheaper to live. Learn more: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauritius There's SO much solid, in-depth conversation that I implore you to lend your ears to the slightly-over-an-hour show. It's worth the time.

And after nearly 5+ years in the making, the public will soon learn the vast amount of talent this guy from Montana has up his sleeve.

As backstory, David Pepper is the author of The Voter File, The People's House, The Wingman, and Laboratories of Autocracy. he earned his BA from Yale University, and his JF from Yale Law School.

Gina Panettieri, agent at Talcott-Notch Literary
35:39On today's 92nd Episode of The Thriller Zone, we not only celebrate Labor Day Weekend here in the US, but we're providing a Bonus Episode of this podcast. Today, we meet Super Agent Gina Panettieri. It's been fun to branch out in the world of Thriller Fiction, and today we have a special treat as we get the inside scoop on the world of Agenting. Gina is the President of Talcott-Notch Literary, in Milford, CT. I have several friends whom she represents, and they say she's kind, hard-working, and a real tribute to her craft. I'm stoked because if you know me, I've been writing for many years, but have not had the confidence to seek agent representation. Until now. Gina opens my mind to many things, as she provides an insider's look into the Business of Writing.

Faye Kellerman, New York Times Bestselling author of The Hunt
42:57Today's special guest on the 91st Episode of The Thriller Zone is none other than New York Times Bestselling Author Faye Kellerman, the mastermind behind nearly three dozen bestselling thriller novels. With oodles of hits, over a span of several decades, Faye Kellerman has become synonymous with page-turning, character-driven, plot-twisting novels that keep avid fans reading deep into the night. On today's show, we discuss: having a prolific husband as a NYT Bestselling author, two children, both of whom have created a nice career for themselves with storytelling, and what it's like being empty-nesters. Faye offers splendid advice for would-be writers, with a few pointers who may have heard before, but the way she shares, you say to yourself, "Of course, that's it!" Join the show, and while today's sound quality will require just an extra bit of patience, try and listen through it to...The Good Stuff.

David Ellis, New York Times Bestselling Author of LOOK CLOSER
1:02:24Today's 89th Episode of The Thriller Zone welcomes New York Times Bestselling Author, David Ellis. As though that superlative title isn't enough, David is also an Edgar-Award Winner. This podcast will go down in my books as one of my favorites. Why? Call it the sharing of similar interests, two guys enjoying chatting about their favorite things, like Chicago, football, good old-fashioned terrestrial radio, and of course, our mutual appreciation for really good books. David has written a whopper of a page-turner. I'm not kidding. I think I read this book (which reaches nearly 500 pages) in about two days; it's THAT good. Hey, I'll stop typing, so you can stop reading, and instead start LISTENING to the podcast...or WATCHING on our YouTube Channel. But trust me when I say, you will most definitely be running to your local bookstore (please?), or visiting your local library (another superb idea), or more than likely ordering from Amazon. As I mention in the show, I have a Top 10 Fave Reads for Summer '22; however, I'm likely going to extend that to 13...because there are just so many good reads this year. When it comes time to learn more about David, which I might add includes co-writing with the legendary talent James Patterson, you can learn of his other books, one of which is a series, and do so by visiting: DavidEllis.com (a fellow AuthorBytes.com alum, I might add). As always, you can FOLLOW, SUBSCRIBE, LISTEN & WATCH our podcast on (1) TheThrillerZone.com, (2) ANY of the most popular Podcast Channels, and (3) YouTube.com/thethrillerzone.

Halley Sutton, author of The Lady Upstairs
38:32On today's 88th Episode of The Thriller Zone, we welcome Halley Sutton, a relative newcomer to the thriller zone; although you'd never know it by her thriller, The Lady Upstairs. The reason I say that is because this "freshman debut" is anything but naive. Instead, it's rich, propulsive, and so Chandler-esque, I dare you to put it down. Halley lives and writes in Los Angeles, and has such a solid sense of what works that it's easy to see how she'll be one of those writers we'll be hearing from for a long time. Kick back and enjoy this interview, as I'm sure you'll glean more than a few insights that you can put toward your next work. To learn more visit: https://HalleySutton.com (HalleySutton.com).
