The Writescast Network would like to welcome author Nick Chiarkas to a forthcoming episode of the r.r. campbell writescast!
From the author—
Nick Chiarkas grew up in the Al Smith housing projects on Manhattan’s Lower East Side. When he was in the fourth grade, his mother was told by the principal of PS-1 that, “Nick was unlikely to ever complete high school, so you must steer him toward a simple and secure vocation.”
Instead, he became a writer, with a few stops along the way: a US Army Paratrooper, a New York City Police Officer; the Deputy Chief Counsel for the President’s Commission on Organized Crime; and the Director of the Wisconsin State Public Defender Agency.
On the way he picked up a Doctorate from Columbia University; a Law Degree from Temple University; and was a Pickett Fellow at Harvard. How many mothers are told their child is hopeless? How many kids with potential simply surrender to desperation? That’s why he wrote “Weepers”—for them.
Nick’s episode about the seven touchstones for writing a mystery or thriller will debut on May 15th, 2020.
Have a question for Nick Chiarkas about these topics or about his work? Call (or text!) (608) 284-8342 to leave us a message and let us know. We’ll have Nick answer select questions during his interview.
