My guests for April are Joseph Badal and M.J. Markovski.
Joseph Badal grew up in a family where story-telling had been passed down from generation to generation.
His books have received two Tony Hillerman Awards for Best Fiction Book of the Year, been top prize winners on multiple occasions in the Mystery/Thriller category in the New Mexico/Arizona Book Awards competition, received medals from the Military Writers Society of America, and Finalist honors in the International Book Awards.
Joe has written short stories which were published in the "Uncommon Assassins," "Someone Wicked," and "Insidious Assassins" anthologies. To learn more, visit his website at www.JosephBadalBooks.com.
M. J. Markovski was born in Detroit, Michigan to Macedonian immigrant parents. She grew up very sheltered, then moved to Arizona for college. She fell in love with the sun and ended up staying in Tucson. The novel, Whatever It Takes, came to her not only from a dream, but also when her husband at the time not only left her, but her family also. Her journey to writing seriously began 2009/2010 when she became disabled from a major attack from multiple sclerosis. M.J. views it as God's way for her to have more time for writing.
I hope you can drop by and and say, "Hi."
