Another Podcast Interview: Hal Bodner

As the clock ticked toward the end of 2012, I ticked off another To Do item as I posted another of my short interview podcasts. This time it was author Hal Bodner, a fascinating and entertaining person I meet at Necon years ago. (Necon is an annual horror writers' convention in the state of Rhode Island.)

I interviewed Hal about his novel Bite Club, in which Coroner Beck O'Brien teams up with her old friend, Chris, and his flamboyant lover, Troy to find the secret lair of an ancient vampire preying on hot young men. Bite Club is the first in a series of campy, vampy novels set in West Hollywood, CA. Hal was recently a guest blogger on my blog here.

You can listen to the podcast directly at www.vampireswitchesandgeeks.com or download it from iTunes.

This series of short interviews are the result of me asking established writers about their vampire fiction. Many of them had written vampire fiction that I hadn't heard about because I was busy with work, night school, or life at the time of publication.

Previous interviewees in this series are writer F. Paul Wilson, who has been writing bestsellers for over thirty years; Heather Graham, guest of honor, New York Times bestselling author of over 150 novels and novellas; Jeff Strand, also guest of honor, who exquisitely mixes comedy and terror. The next episode should be my interview with writer Scott Goudsward, where we learn, among other things, how to pronounce his name.
