More girls are found murdered, putting Beck in a race to stop a serial killer and stop her own client from destroying her

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcome author/jounalist SHANE GERICKE to tonight's show.  At age 7, Santa delivered my first typewriter, a heavy, clunky, and absolutely glorious rocket ship to the moon. I’ve been writing ever since.I spent 25 years as a newspaper editor and reporter, writing about everything from football games to Liberace concerts to a bearded local nudist who ran for President.I left my guaranteed newspaper paycheck for the heady world of crime fiction..After writing two manuscripts that never did sell, I wrote Blown Away, intending it to be a little cop drama set in the suburbs of Chicago..Blown Away was named debut mystery of the year by RT Book Reviews, and hit the Barnes & Noble national bestseller list. (Later on, it became a No. 1 bestseller on Kindle.) I followed that with Cut to the Bone, then Torn Apart,  I help run the ThrillerFest literary conference in New York City and its PitchFest author-agent match program.

    Author Peg Brantley, crime fiction writer, visits Authors on the Air

    in Books

    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack is proud to welcome Peg Brantley, writer and blogger, to the studio.  About Ms. Brantley :  A Colorado native, Peg Brantley is a member of Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers and Sisters In Crime. She and her husband make their home southeast of Denver, and have shared it with the occasional pair of mallard ducks and their babies, snapping turtles, peacocks, assorted other birds, foxes, a deer named Cedric and a bichon named McKenzie.


    A note from Peg:  When I was almost finished writing the first draft of THE MISSINGS, a character came into the story. I only intended him for a very small role. Instead, he threatened to derail the entire story and take it over. He was that strong, and I was that close to finishing. It was a battle. I promised him his own book if he would just back off. He did, and Mex Anderson got to play a much bigger role in THE SACRIFICE.  Beginning with my second book, I've tried to lightly touch on a social issue. My hope is that it could bring about some discussion, maybe even shed a little different perspective. With THE MISSINGS, it was illegal immigration and organ donation. With THE SACRIFICE, it's living with depression.
