MTTA 168: Scott Shepherd Meet the Thriller Author: Interviews with Writers of Mystery, Thriller, and Suspense Books

    • Books

Scott Shepherd is a veteran writer/producer/show-runner with years of experience running network series; his production and screenwriting credits include The Equalizer, Miami Vice, The Outer Limits, Haven, and Quantum Leap. Born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, he currently teaches television writing at the University of Texas in Austin. The Last Commandment is his first mystery novel.







It’s a great mystery thriller featuring a Scotland Yard detective tracking a serial killer from London to New York City.







I enjoyed chatting with Scott about his amazing career in television and his work as a novelist and writing his latest book which is the first in a series (the second book will be out in 2022).
