Charlie Byrne Surfs CrimeWav(e)

Seth and Aldo have done me a solid for the holidays, and for this I am so unbelievably grateful. Really.

For all those who never got the chance to read the very first of my Charlie Byrne stories "The Lifeguard Method" ...I'm reading it via Harwood's online podcast powerhouse CrimeWav. This is a big thrill for me. Truly terrified of hearing my own voice naturally. Here's hoping I don't sound like too much of a mumbling schmuck. Take a listen to Episode 45 if you dare.
