    Colin Kersey on Climbing Mountains and Swimming with the Angels

    Colin Kersey on Climbing Mountains and Swimming with the Angels

    Colin Kersey's writing combines hair-raising stories and vivid prose with colorful characters. His first novel, SOUL CATCHER, was published by St. Martin's Press. A former Washingtonian and self-described rainophobe, Colin now lives on a sunny island in Southern California, employed as Global PR Manager for a Japanese company. 

    He is a graduate of the University of Washington, Western Washington University, and the novel writing program at Stanford University. He is currently working on a third novel. His work has been mentioned or featured in select news media outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews.

    On today's show, Colin shares the reasons why, after a strong debut novel, he didn't write again for 25 years and tells Alex about his new book, SWIMMING WITH THE ANGELS. You'll also hear about his harrowing climb of Mount Ranier, his thoughts on grief in storytelling, and more. Listen in!

Excellent interviewer

Alex Greenwood read the book, picked out selections the readers would enjoy, and pulled out unique backstories. You can hear the energy and care for the work. Simply an inspired interviewer.

Edge of my seat interesting

With over 2,000,000 podcasts it can be difficult to schedule time for a few favorites. This is one of them. Clear, compelling and insightful I enjoy the variety and professionalism.

Excellent Podcast!

Highly recommend this wonderful podcast. I’ve been a guest twice for two of my novels The Ancestor and Orange City and always have a great time. Alex Greenwood does a fantastic job! Give it a listen.
