Peter Eichstaedt has written non-fiction books based on his reporting all over the world, from Kosovo to Armenia, Afghanistan and Uganda (among other stops).

He also published a book called The Dangerous Divide: Peril and Promise on the US-Mexico Border and that title won the 2015 International Latino Book Award for Best in Current Affairs.

It might not come as much of a surprise, then, that Peter’s first novel is a thriller called Borderland and it’s set on the US-Mexico Border, among other locations.

Borderland, published in March by Wild Blue Press, features reporter Kyle Dawson and this time on the podcast Peter is here to tell us about his first novel and about making the switch from covering stories to making them up.

This time on the podcast we check back in with Laurence MacNaughton, whose new urban fantasy A Kiss Before Doomsday is set to launch in a few short weeks, one year after he debuted his new series with It Happened One Doomsday.

We are back with Dru Jasper and her crystal shop and her magical powers and sorcerers and major problems trying to stop, yes, another impending apocalypse.

Laurence MacNaughton grew up in Connecticut and sold his first magazine story at age 19. Over the years, he’s been a bookseller, typesetter, printer, copywriter and a prototype vehicle test driver.

Following the Q & A, Laurence reads the opening scene from A Kiss Before Doomsday.
