Mr. Media is recorded live before a studio audience full of potential criminals who know why banks get robbed so often… in the NEW new media capital of the world… St. Petersburg, Florida!
If you are geography-challenged, buckle in.
My guest today, novelist Steven Savile, is a British writer, living in Sweden, whose latest novel is about a bank robbery gone ridiculously wrong… in Chicago.
STEVEN SAVILE podcast excerpt: “Stephen Hawking has lived more than 30 years with his (ALS/Lou Gehrig’s Disease) diagnosis. But with others, it can be horribly quick. My uncle has got two kids and both of them suffer from ALS. It’s actually a disease that’s really close to home. I’ve seen the effect it has on people. I found it really hard when my farther-in-law died of ALS. With a work of fiction such as ‘Parallel Lines,’ I wanted to experience my own catharsis. This was a way of writing out a bit of the grief”
Parallel Lines is a fast-moving crime story about how our individual destinies move similarly alongside one another without ever touching – and what happens when some of them finally do intersect. It is written with seamless craft and attention to detail without ever letting any of that slow down the plot.
As for the writer, Steven Savile – who is talking to us today from Sweden – he is a genre-jumping author who is as at home with bad dudes in the Windy City as he is taking flight with Doctor Who or jumping through time and space in Stargate mythology.
