Welcome Thriller Writer B. Zaragoza

Welcome Guest Barbara Zaragoza

I’m so excited that Barbara Zaragoza’s new book The Listener’s Labyrinth is out. I met Barbara at a Thriller Fest Conference in New York City and we became instant friends. I was completely impressed by her background living abroad in Italy and speaking several languages, not to mention her level of education. She’s one smart lady. She’s also very down to earth and friendly. I just bought my copy and can’t wait to read it. I know it’ll be a great story.

The Listener’s Labyrinth

Bio: B. Zaragoza is a novelist in San Diego, California. A naval spouse for fifteen years, she studied International Relations and worked for government before becoming a writer. She has lived in cities on the West Coast, East Coast and in Europe. She is also the author of two other books and many print and on-line articles.

Blurb: Dr. Elise Kardiner is on her way out of the Navy because she pulls homeless vets off the streets and checks them into the inpatient ward for a warm meal.

Captain Ike has returned from a deployment in Afghanistan where his team of six Navy SEALs died.

The two have been divorced for twenty years, after the death of their two-year-old son. Then, a Navy SEAL from Ike's team in Afghanistan shows up in the hospital. He's emaciated, suicidal and has a strange ability to see into people's pasts. Ike asks for Elise's help.

It will take Elise's suspension, an admiral's questionable visit and help from her former patient, a paranoid schizophrenic veteran, before she uncovers a devious drug testing program targeted at soldiers.

But her knowledge also means that a deranged owner of a private military firm (PMF) will hunt her down.

Gripping with many twists, THE LISTENER'S LABYRINTH, is a fast-paced thriller novel.

Thanks for your kind words, Kathy. The feeling is mutual -- you're one smart lady and a GREAT writer! And admittedly -- ahem -- I'm jealous that you get to hang out with all those hunks in Speedo's. :)

LOL Barbara. Yes, that is one benefit of writing for EC. The hunky EC Cavemen who are very nice and all gentlemen. Congrats on your book. I'm sure it'll be a hit.
