Podcast Interview for Fire of the Covenant

Recently I was contacted by an Australian Book Blogger, Dave Kearney, and he asked if he could interview me over Skype. After some coordination (there is an 18 hour difference), we spent an hCourtesy of http://timflanaganauthor.com/blog/page/3/our chatting about my writing experiences; about my first novel, Fire of the Covenant; my 40 year dream of becoming an  author and finally reaching it; along with more questions about my writing and my life.
