    My Favorite Detective Stories:



    Our guest today is Frank Bequaert. Frank resides in Keene, New Hampshire, and grew up in the Boston area. Went to school and trained at Harvard University and then Stanford University as an electrical engineer,

    He began writing for his high school literary magazine and continued to write short stories, selling them to Cosmopolitan and Playboy magazine amongst other notable publications of the day.

    Most recently he's published in mystery weekly magazine and the short story that caught my attention was "Never Kidnap a Crime Novelist" under his pen name of Stan Dryer. It is my pleasure to bring on, Frank Bequaert. I believe that you'll enjoy this interview about a short story writer.
