Ten Questions with Ross Klavan

Ross Klavan is the person you always wanted to be. At least I feel this way. His novel, “Shmuck”, was published in 2014 and he recently finished the screenplay for “The Colony” based on the book by John Bowers. He has a vast past in writing screenplays, doing voiceovers, and covers stories as a reporter for New York City and London, England. Can you also recognize him by his television and radio commercials?

Ten Questions with Tim O’Mara

Tim O’Mara isn’t a newbie to writing. He’s the author of the Raymond Donne Mysteries, which I look forward to reading and reviewing very, very soon. In the book “Triple Shot”, Mr. O’Mara balances his narrator’s smuggling and selling marijuana with the same issues with plain old cigarettes. But do illegal automatic weapons count?
