Author Interviews

So, The Martin Lastrapes Show Podcast Hour has been chugging along in 2014 and so far it's been as fun and rewarding as I'd hoped it would be when I first decided to do it. When I first began developing the show, one of the main features I hoped to have was author interviews. And, as the podcast is rapidly approaching it's one-year anniversary, I'm thrilled at both the number and quality of author interviews I've been able to do. Below are all of the author interviews I've done on the podcast up to now, so scroll down and take a listen...
