Earlier this year, my publisher, Mike White, recommended that I meet Craig Bieber, as he thought we had a lot in common. While the subject venue of our first books is very different, Mike thought we might be able to help each other in marketing them.
I first met Craig at Frank’s, a breakfast dive to die for in the heart of Tucson. We ordered Mexican omelets, talked, licked our plates clean, and exchanged books. Craig seemed like a nice enough guy, but could he write? I had met several people during the past year that passed themselves off as writers. Unfortunately, many of them could not walk the talk.
In case you’re curious, my Amazon review in March, 2008, of Craig’s first book is as follows: “I just moments ago completed reading Craig Bieber’s fast-moving thriller, Saylor’s Triangle. And, I am still out of breath. The book is well-written, difficult to put down once you get started, and filled with non-stop, no-holds-barred action. However, be prepared to be tantalized and surprised by the unexpected. Bieber is a great story teller. For anyone who enjoys a good, exciting mystery, this book is a must read.”
