Introducing MEET THE THRILLER AUTHOR PODCAST with host Alan Peterson
I was born in San Jose, Costa Rica, and I grew up there and in Caracas, Venezuela. I write thrillers set in Latin America.
I came to the United States (Minnesota) to go to college. I married my college sweetheart, and I’ve been living in the U.S. since.
In 2010 we moved from Minnesota to California. We were happy to trade Minnesota winters for Northern California fog.
I live with my wife, Jennifer, and our three little dogs (King Charles Cavalier, Havanese, and Japanese Chin) on a quintessential San Francisco city street with a 17% steep grade.
Alan also has a great podcast…
Interview with multi-award winning author Peter May
This podcast originally appears on www.thrillingreads.com Jan.9, 2019. Duration: 50 min.
Peter May is the multi award-winning author of:
– the award-winning Lewis Trilogy set in the Outer Hebrides of Scotland;
– the China Thrillers, featuring Beijing detective Li Yan and American forensic pathologist Margaret Campbell;
– the Enzo Files, featuring Scottish forensic scientist Enzo MacLeod, which is set in France. The sixth and final Enzo book is Cast Iron (UK January 2017, Riverrun).
He has also written several standalone books:
– I’ll Keep You Safe (January 2018, Riverrun)
– Entry Island (January 2014, Quercus UK)
– Runaway (January 2015, Quercus UK)
– Coffin Road (January 2016, Riverrun)
He has also had a successful career as a television writer, creator, and producer.
One of Scotland’s most prolific television dramatists, he garnered more than 1000 credits in 15 years as scriptwriter and script editor on prime-time British television drama. He is the creator of three major television drama series and presided over two of the highest-rated serials in his homeland before quitting television to concentrate on his first love, writing novels.
Born and raised in Scotland he lives in France.
After being turned down by all the major UK publishers, the first of the The Lewis Trilogy – The Blackhouse – was published in France as L’Ile des Chasseurs d’Oiseaux where it was hailed as “a masterpiece” by the French national newspaper L’Humanité. His novels have a large following in France. The trilogy has won several French literature awards, including one of the world’s largest adjudicated readers awards, the Prix Cezam.
The Blackhouse was published in English by the award-winning Quercus (a relatively young publishing house which did not exist when the book was first presented to British publishers). It went on to become an international best seller, and was shortlisted for both Barry Award and Macavity Award when it was published in the USA.
The Blackhouse won the US Barry Award for Best Mystery Novel at Bouchercon in Albany NY, in 2013.
