Former CIA Officer and current Thriller Writer David McCloskey
On today's 23rd episode of The Thriller Zone, I'm happy to introduce you to David McCloskey, author of Damascus Station. I feel confident saying you'll enjoy getting to know him as much as I have.And to be frank, I think this guy will be one of those authors you’ll read for years to come. In fact, if you enjoy John Le Carre, you’ll really enjoy his latest page-turning thriller. I read it, and personally feel it has it all; intrigue, murder, espionage, and even romance. Yes; David has a hit on his hands, as you’ll hear inside the show.A nice bonus, especially meeting someone who is relatively new on the scene, is how excited and humble he appears; especially given the depth of this thriller. On today's show we cover a wide gamut of topics: the CIA, his work following "bad guys," his reporting to the White House with daily briefs, as well as his love of Texas (where he and his family live), his admiration of Peter The Great (be sure to catch the rapid fire questions near the end), and his passion for Italian food (I mean, who doesn't love that?).We even refer to my new friend and a man David wants to read and get to know, Fred Burton (author of Beirut Rules), as well as hear his taste in books (Little Drummer Girl by John Le Carre), his respect of music (Jack Antonoff/Bleachers), and of course, his love for and the craft of writing.There's so much to take away from this episode, so get comfortable folks because it’s time to get into The Thriller Zone.For More Information, go to: DavidMcCloskeyBooks.com and follow him on Twitter @mccloskeybooks.THRILLER ZONE PLUG: Be sure to catch all the podcasts, both audio AND video, on the newly updated and handsomely enhanced website: TheThrillerZone.com Plus, stay tuned for several new features coming to the show including: contests to win autographed copies of the books we discuss on the show, multiple chances to win "Official Thriller Zone Swag" that includes t-shirts, coffee mugs and more.Finally, if you're a Thriller Writer who would like to be on the show in 2022, there will soon be a way to sign up and share your latest or upcoming release.Cheers!Special Thanks & Photo Credit to Anders Jildén on Unsplash for the use of his background photo in the new Thriller Zone logo.

The Thriller Zone Bonus Podcast #4 featuring: The Poser Audiobook
Welcome to the fourth & final BONUS EPISODE of The Thriller Zone Podcast, featuring The Poser.As you may know by now, earlier this month, I decided to offer some additional thriller entertainment to my listeners with a work of my own. Last year I released the mystery/thriller The Poser, based upon my character, Hollywood Detective Pat Norelli, and shortly after, I released the audiobook (available here).And thus sprung the idea...which is simple & free! For this last Tuesday of August, you can enjoy the audiobook in this last of four, 25-chapter long sections. If you’ve been following along, then you know that each audiobook portion is around 2 hours, making the entire book just under 9 hours. So, prepare for your long drive or cross-country flight, and whether it's an all-nighter, or a leisurely walk, kick back and enjoy the final 25 chapters of The Poser, starring rookie Detective Pat Norelli; chapters 76-98, to be exact.By the way, while this audiobook is free for you and to share with friends, I'd only ask that you not "copy & repurpose for your financial gain." One Last Thing: IF you downloaded any portion of this audiobook and enjoyed the experience, it would mean the world to me to get a note from you sharing your experience. Often creators spend countless hours in seclusion writing books and crafting audiobooks, and it’s just nice to know that someone is listening…and enjoying all the hard work. So, if that's you, please go to my website DavidTempleBooks.com and leave a note on my Contact page, or go to my Twitter page, and leave a quick note. I’d really appreciate it. Thank you again & I hope you enjoy The Poser.Cheers!

NY Times bestselling author Ted Bell
After crafting 14 New York Times bestsellers centering around his swashbuckling and James Bond-like Alex Hawke character, one might think Ted Bell was satisfied with his epic life’s body of work and is perhaps ready for retirement. But you couldn’t be more wrong.Former Advertising Executive and life-long adventure-seeker, Ted has oodles of stories to tell—both on the page and in person.In fact, I was fortunate enough to capture Ted in rare form (via Zoom; the next best thing to being there), as we spent nearly 90 minutes (although felt like only fifteen) discussing high-performance sports cars and luxury yachts, our favorite cocktails, his vast history of advertising, his lovely European girlfriend, and of course, our mutual love of crafting adventure-rich and page-turning thrillers.His gift of words is one he’s been able to cultivate since childhood and in turn master since the turn of the 21st century. And he’s done so with reckless abandon—much the same way he’s amassed a lifestyle as rich as the Bentley he drives.Do yourself a favor: find a comfy chaise, pour a frosty cocktail, and enjoy as one of the legends of “Madison Avenue” and fine purveyor of storytelling spins yarn after yarn, causing this host to chuckle more than once.It’s my sincere pleasure to introduce to you, Theodore A. (for Adventure) Bell.Publication Order of Ted's Alexander Hawke Books:Hawke (2003)Assassin (2004)Pirate (2005)Spy (2006)Tsar (2008)Warlord (2010)Crash Dive (2012)Phantom (2012)What Comes Around (2013)Warriors (2014)White Death (2015)Patriot (2015)Overkill (2018)Dragon Fire (2020)Seahawke: Coming 12-7-21Publication Order of Nick McIver Adventures Through Time Books:Nick of Time (2000)The Time Pirate (2010)Publication Order of Short Stories/Novellas:The Powder Monkey (2017)Publication Order of Anthologies:The Rich and the Dead (2011)Learn more: TedBell.com - Twitter: @AlexHawke - Instagram: @authortedbell
