Wrong Place, Write Crime
is a podcast about crime fiction authors, mysteries, art and life featuring Frank Zafiro as host. Episodes include guest interviews (primarily with authors of crime fiction, but not always), as well as quick hit reviews from mystery bookstore experts, flash interviews with future guests and updates on works in progress by the host and other authors.

This podcast explores the art of writing crime fiction, the art of reading crime fiction, and any other cool topic that comes up, as long as it falls under the category of either ‘art’ or ‘life.’

Preview Episode now available!

June 5: Dave Zeltersman
  In which Dave talks about the new Netflix film SMALL CRIMES that was based upon his novel, as well as his other works, his early days as a writer, and why he believes the days of successful self-publishing are done.

June 19: Danny Gardner
  In which Danny talks about his new novel A NEGRO AND AN OFAY, getting bumped for Damon Wayons at stand up clubs all over Los Angeles, getting your art out there, and then gives the most eloquent and common sense explanation of how we should be dealing with race in America that you’re ever likely to hear anywhere. 

July 3: Steve Hamilton
  In which Steve talks about his new novel EXIT STRATEGY, how THE LOCK ARTIST unlocked doors for him, some of his books becoming films (but never Alex McKnight!), getting to hang out with easily the coolest crime writers of the last two generations, and he basically he endures the full-on fanboy treatment from the host…all with considerable grace.  

July 17: John Floyd
  In which John demonstrates the rumors about him being a true gentleman are true as he talks about the lure of the short story for him, his writing process, how he and the host first met, and when he first knew he wanted to be a writer (spoiler alert: it’s not when you think). 

July 31: Sarah M. Chen
  In which Sarah talks about her Anthony-nominated novella CLEANING UP FINN, why she sometimes writes male protagonists, how she met Ray Bradbury on his birthday, and how it is that she knows the value of pistachio nuts on the black market.


August 21:  JB Dickey of Seattle Mystery Bookshop
