Join host Tom Riddell and co-host Teri Brown as they welcome author Rob Samborn to The Writers Lounge. Sit back and relax as Rob discusses what it's like to be a writer and he will also talk to us about his book: Painter of the Damned.

In the 2nd novel of this series Nick and Julia O'Connor are hoping to return home from their vacation in Venice, which has been nothing less than a nightmare. Nick is trying desperately to rid his mind, and his desires, for a 16th century soul mate who is entombed in a Tintoretto painting. It is a purgatory for thousands of other souls. The painting titled Paradise is controlled by Salvatore della Porta, a corrupt head of an ancient, enigmatic order. Nick and Julia are enroute to the American consulate when they are detained by Interpol and Salvatore della Porta is behind it all.

Salvatore believes that Nick, in a previous life, where he met Isabella, his soul mate, knows the location of a book which will bring della Porta a power that can change the world or topple the order. Nick is detained and Julia is desperate to save her husband and to stop della Porta in his tracks. The new life force of Paradise is a young artist, Carlo Zuccaro, who has become the new painter and warden of the damned, but Julia is unaware of this as she befriends him in an attempt to rescue her husband. All the while Nick is still entwined with his past life and his struggles continue on many fronts.
