Tomorrow's Guest: Robert Kresge
Tomorrow, historical western mystery author Robert Kresge will be a guest on my blog. Rob is a former senior intelligence analyst and founding member of the CIA’s Counterterrorist Center. Since 2002, he and his wife Julie have lived in Albuquerque, NM. He holds a Bachelor of Journalism degree from the University of Missouri and a Masters in International Affairs from George Washington University. He founded a writers group at CIA that had, upon his retirement 180 members and is still active today. Rob was a founding member and past president of “Croak & Dagger,” the Albuquerque chapter of Sisters in Crime. He is also a member of the Rocky Mountain Chapter of Mystery Writers of America, the Historical Novels Society, and Western Writers of America.
Rob’s first mystery was a finalist for the 2011 Bruce Alexander Award and a New Mexico Book Award. His second novel is now a finalist for best mystery in this year’s New Mexico-Arizona Book Awards. His first short story, “Ground Truth,” a first person mystery set on the present-day Jicarilla Apache Reservation in New Mexico and featuring police sergeant Jo Ann Barefoot, was published by La Frontera Press in the anthology Outlaws and Lawmen in October.
In his guest post tomorrow, Robert answers my interview questions, and I'm sure you'll be intrigued by what he has to say. Then, feel free to ask him some questions of your own in the comments.
