Had a blast chopping up the red meat of writing with fellow author Terrence McCauley for his Spies, Lies and Private Eyes podcast. Terrence is a top-flight writer who has penned private eye mysteries before shifting gears to author highly-regarded Westerns, something I’m interested in trying my hand at. We talked about the challenges of portraying the true Wild West and overcoming the TV stereotype, the importance of setting a keen sense of place in a novel and the importance of doing deep research to give your books a strong foundation of authenticity.
And we chatted up my latest Ed Earl Burch hard-boiled Texas crime thriller, THE DEAD CERTAIN DOUBT, available on Amazon at: https://www.amazon.com/author/jimnesbitt
Will send out the link when this podcast runs. Heads up — cigars were smoked during this recording.
