This week, a very special Oddcast for me, featuring the internationally acclaimed, bestselling author of 32 books, David Morrell, whom I’ve known since way way back at the University of Iowa (that was in the Late Devouring Period). He is the co-founder of the International Thriller Writers Organization, a Bouchercon Lifetime Achievement Award winner, and International Thriller Writers’ Thriller Master. He talks with me, Jon McGoran, Merry Deedee Jones, Kelly Simmons, and Keith Strunk about his early success writing the Rambo series, including First Blood; watching his books turn into movies; and writing about the craft of writing itself…and then there are his most recent works, the sublime Thomas De Quincey historical thrillers: Murder as a Fine Art, Inspector of the Dead, and Ruler of the Night.
Welcome, David Morrell.
I’ve known author William Lashner, author of the Victor Carl series and more, for a long time. He’s always a pleasure to talk with, full of knowledge, passion, humor, and words of wisdom to shake up the writing process. He also is the 2nd person in a row that the Philadelphia Liars Club has interviewed for the Oddcast who is a lover of Melville’s Moby Dick. Find out why this week on the Oddcast.
