Host Gerald Everett Jones and his co-hosts Cheyenne Cockrell and Thomas Page discuss the mystery genre with special guest author Marvin J. Wolf. Wolf is the author of the Rabbi Ben mysteries: For Whom the Shofar Blows, A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn, and A Tale of Two Rabbis. #amwriting #selfpub #mysterythriller #podcast #booklovers

Marv responds to our questions, including:

How does mystery fiction differ from true crime? What is a police procedural? Do all mysteries fall into that category? Have you ever come across a story that you thought was too painful or too troubling to write? How does the training and skillset of a journalist inform the work of a mystery novelist? Is it a truism that social media is killing journalism these days? A Scribe Dies in Brooklyn is full of Judaic scholarship. Did you just absorb all that detail over the years, or was it a research project in itself?

Gerald Everett Jones is the author of Preacher Finds a Corpse: An Evan Wycliff Mystery.
