This week’s Liars Club Oddcast is a very special Noir at the Bar, with bite-sized readings from Jon McGoran, Merry Jones, Bill Lashner, Robb Cadigan, Gregory Frost, Don Lafferty, Edward G Pettit, Bernard Schaffer, Erik Arneson, Dennis Tafoya, and William L. Myers Jr.
The show is a fundraiser for the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, in memory of Evie Swierczynski, and the Liars and readers encourage all listeners to consider a donation in Evie’s honor at bit.ly/team-evie-chla-fundraiser. Your tax-deductible gift will help create hope and build healthier futures for many young patients and their families.
My longtime pal, New York Times Bestseller Robert Crais, author of the Award-winning Elvis Cole thrillers (his latest is THE WANTED, out in just a few days), graces the Oddcast this week, wherein he reveals a love for science fiction, and describes how intensely he dedicated himself to writing when he moved to L.A. and broke into television, working on such acclaimed shows as Hill Street Blues and Cagney & Lacey—a crash-course on immersion from this Grandmaster-Award-winning author.
My longtime pal, fellow Liars Club member, and wonderful writer, Kelly Simmons invades the Oddcast this week to talk about her new book, about how Nantucket inspired it, and how to persevere with your writing even during those times when you can’t buy a vowel.
