With Carrie today is Dr. J.L Delozier who has the afternoon off and instead of resting, she was talking to us.
J.L. Delozier submitted her first story, handwritten in pencil on lined school paper, to Asimov’s magazine while still in junior high school. Several years later, she took a creative writing elective at Penn State University and was hooked. Thriller writer, physician, and cookie addict, we were so glad that she didn’t rest and spent some time with us.
How cool is she?
Dr. Delozier’s first thriller, Type & Cross, debuted in April, 2016 and was nominated for a “Best First Novel” award by the International Thriller Writers
Type & Cross, is about a virus that starts in China and kills half the world’s population.
If you listen to the podcast, you’ll find out that Dr. Delozier has the writing chops and the medical knowledge to write that book. She worked for the federal government about disaster preparedness and now she’s working at a Pennsylvania hospital dealing with Covid-19 and trying to lift the spirits of both her patients and the staff.
Listen, and you’ll realize that you might want to move to Pennsylvania and have her be your doctor, too.
Here are some places to find out more about J.L.
And here’s a link to her newest book, CON ME ONCE. It’s pretty amazing just like her.
