    John Gilstrap, New York Times Bestselling Author

    Today, New York Times Bestselling Author https://johngilstrap.com (John Gilstrap) joins The Thriller Zone to chat up his latest #VictoriaEmerson #thriller: #BlueFire.
    With 24 books to his credit, two series, a collection of short stories and novellas, and a YouTube Channel where he helps up-and-coming writers learn some of the nuts and bolts of the business, John shows no signs of slowing down.
    In this episode, we have a blast. Sure we talk his books, his methods of crafting engaging thrillers, but we also manage to work in conversations about our favorite cocktails; yes, there is a difference between vodka and gin when ordering a Martini); we discover some of John's new and upcoming releases, and, most importantly, his writing process.
    In fact, with nearly 25 bestsellers to his credit, I'm particularly thrilled how he shares what he calls his "Secret To Success."
    This 42nd Episode promises to entertain, enlighten and encourage. And bonus: you'll enjoy some great laughs along the way!

    Nick Kolakowski, Pulp Thriller Writer

    On today’s 41st episode of The Thriller Zone, join Podcast Host David Temple as thriller writer Nick Kolakowski joins the show.
    His book #LoveandBullets has been called "Visceral and Vivacious" by author S.A. Cosby...with "Take-No-Prisoners Prose" says author Frank Bill.
    Love and Bullets: Megabomb Edition is chock full of slick, seedy characters, and a racing plot that'll keep you anxious, nervous and laughing all at the same time, while turning pages as you race to the end.

    Andrews-Wilson, Dynamic Duo of Thriller Writing

    Andrews-Wilson, Dynamic Duo of Thriller Writing

    On today’s podcast, I’m happy to welcome the dynamic writing duo of Andrews-Wilson. Brian Andrews and Jeffrey Wilson make up the team who have created a number of exceptionally engaging characters in a number of series.
    Those series include: Tier One, Sons of Valor, Shepherd Series, and the Presidential Agent Series.
    On today’s show, we’ll discuss one of their more recent books: ROGUE ASSET, the latest in the WEB Griffin Series.
    Given this is a repeat performance for these guys—both of whom have become friends—I hesitate to pontificate about all the awards and magazine covers and TV deals and multi-series deals in the making and so forth.
    Instead, I’d rather you stop reading and start listening to one of the more enjoyable podcasts of the new year.
    So, strap in, pour yourself a tasty beverage and let’s get into The Thriller Zone.

    Tammy Temple hosts our 2021 Countdown

    Tammy Temple hosts our 2021 Countdown

    On today’s 38th Episode of The Thriller Zone, I welcome Special Guest Tammy Temple to co-host the show with me. Tammy is the Estate Manager for N4FL Worldwide, and one-half of The Dave and Tammy Tour Podcast (currently on hiatus but rumored to return in '22).
    Tammy joins the podcast to discuss The Thriller Zone's Top Thriller TV Series, Movies, and of course, Books of 2021. Some of them you’ll expect, some you may not.
    As for TV Series, there were some doozies. And books? There were so many, it's been super tough narrowing it down to only 10; however, there should have been Top 36 or so, as I've been a reading maniac since launching the podcast in June.
    In between, we’ll chat about some of the talented craftsmen and women who have strongly influenced our lives, both in entertainment, as well as personally. Many of you know who you are.
    By the end of the show, you’ll gain insights as to the “Movers and Shakers” we’ve come to admire, as well as the people we’re keeping our eyes whom we think will make significant strides in the New Year.
    Honestly, I can’t think of a better co-host than my awesome wife to make this final show of the year, one of the very best!
    Once again, it’s time to Get In The Thriller Zone!
