On the Beat with Gregg Hurwitz-Part 2

Yesterday I ran the first part of my interview with best-selling author Gregg Hurwitz at Wizard World.  I also talked a bit about his books and his career.  Today, I'd like to talk a bit about meeting Hurwitz.
The experience was incredible.  I exchanged several emails with Dana Kaye of Kaye Publicity setting up and confirming the interview.  Gregg and Dana could not have been nicer.  I met Gregg and Dana in the lobby of a hotel in Rosemont. We talked a bit before the interview and then found a nice spot (thanks to Executive Producer Matt Parker) to sit and do the interview.  Gregg was patient and pleasant, insightful and funny. 
I have done a lot of interviews and I must say that Gregg and Dana made this one of the most pleasurable experiences I have had.  To meet and talk to the man who has given me so much reading pleasure was really incredible.
Below is the second part of my interview with Gregg Hurwitz.    We discuss Tim Rackley, a character from four of Gregg's books) and some of Gregg's insight into writing.  If you haven't checked out GreggHurwitz.net yet, go there now.  I want everyone to get to know Gregg and his books!

Thanks.
I have more interviews with artists, creators and writers coming up. Wizard World was full of them and I got a few to talk to us.
Glad you liked the Hurwitz one. He was really nice.
