episode 19: Colin Kersey on Climbing Mountains and Swimming with the Angels

Colin Kersey's writing combines hair-raising stories and vivid prose with colorful characters. His first novel, SOUL CATCHER, was published by St. Martin's Press. A former Washingtonian and self-described rainophobe, Colin now lives on a sunny island in Southern California, employed as Global PR Manager for a Japanese company. 

He is a graduate of the University of Washington, Western Washington University, and the novel writing program at Stanford University. He is currently working on a third novel. His work has been mentioned or featured in select news media outlets, including Entertainment Weekly, Washington Post, Library Journal, Publishers Weekly, and Kirkus Reviews.

On today's show, Colin shares the reasons why, after a strong debut novel, he didn't write again for 25 years and tells Alex about his new book, SWIMMING WITH THE ANGELS. You'll also hear about his harrowing climb of Mount Ranier, his thoughts on grief in storytelling, and more. Listen in!
