The Thriller Zone

On today's 111th episode of The Thriller Zone we welcome C. Matthew Smith. His debut thriller is called TWENTY MILE and takes place in the backwoods of the Great Smoky Mountains.

Matt's sense of place, cast of characters, and visceral feel of the country where murder and mystery take place is evidence this writer has a lot more gas in his tank.

Join us as we talk about life in the South, what it takes to be a writer these days, we'll discover how we both have more than a several "degrees of separation" in our pasts, and much more.
