    Special Edition with NYTIMES BEST SELLING AUTHOR VINCENT ZANDRI

    in Lifestyle

    The show will heat up as author Vincent Zandri and host Fran Lewis talk about his latest release: EVERYTHING BURNS!


    When Reece Johnston was a boy, a fire destroyed his home, killing his mother and brothers while leaving him scarred for life. It also kindled something dark inside him: an irresistible attraction to flames in all their terrifying, tantalizing power. But after two failed arson attempts—and two trips to the mental ward—he was finally able to put down the matches and pick up the pieces.


    With a career as a bestselling crime writer going strong, Reece is working to fix his broken marriage to Lisa and be there for their preteen daughter, Anna. He’s not just dealing with his own demons; there’s a world of deadly hurt bearing down on him in the form of the jealous rival he’s bested in literature and love, who’s determined to see Reece crash…and burn. But a guy like Reece knows how to take the heat. And thanks to his lifelong friendship with fire, he also knows how to bring it. When the fire rages within him who will be there to put out the final flame before it's too late!


     


    Join me in the chat room with this great author to talk about how he created the title, why he chose arson as this topic and what happens when a best selling author finds himself falling prey to a psychopathic killer.


     


    Fran Lewis: Author of: The Vanishing Mind of Ruth Swerdloff: IN HER OWN WORDS: an alzheimer's suffer's journal.
