What started out as a streaming audio show at Wired in 2000 morphed into this little program in my tiny corner of the Internet.

Author and publisher Brad King hosts The Downtown Writers Jam Podcast, this hour-long, one-on-one interview program where authors discuss the horrible choices they made in life that led them down the road to writing. Sometimes there is whiskey. Oftentimes there is cursing. But always entertaining. (My friends wouldn’t lie to me, right?)

You can purchase the books through my bookstore, which helps support independent stores across America.

And, you can listen to the podcast:

Episode 53: Trevor Wood: I’m never quite sure what we’re getting into on the Jam. In this episode, author and playwright Trevor Wood took me on a journey that weaved through his time in the Royal Navy, then to becoming a playwright, and on to writing his first novel, The Man on the Street. Most writers travel a circuitous path on their way to publishing, but Trevor’s is one of the most interesting we’d had on the show. Buckle up and pour a stiff drink.

While author Trevor Wood and I certainly covered a great deal of ground, from his time in the Royal Navy to writing a debut crime novel, The Man on the Street, this is a pretty accurate depiction of how the conversation went down.

This newsletter is the outgrowth of The Downtown Writers Jam podcast. What that means is I will collect information about the authors I interview, book happenings around the Web, and other literary events that I find interesting. Without you, I'm just a crazy guy sitting in his office furiously screaming on the page for no reason.
