Sweet, thanks for posting this interview. I will check it out. I LOVE Jonathan Maberry. I haven't read all the Joe Ledger series yet but am working on it. He was a keynote speaker at the DFW Writers Conference a couple years ago, and I have to say, he is amazing! He was truly an inspiring speaker and so encouraging and helpful to authors. I hope he comes back soon!
