This episode is no ordinary listicle. Author Nick Chiarkas joins the program to discuss how to write a mystery or thriller (or, as he explains, any story), and, along the way, he regales us with tales of mid-20th-century NYC and inevitable yet surprising endings in funeral homes.

Thanks to our sponsors Dandelion Web Marketing and the Wisconsin Writers Association.
