Congrats on the launch of “The Blue Plate Special Podcast.” What was your inspiration to create this show?
The Executive Producer, Pam Stack, invited me to pitch ideas for a show. There were already several genre specific shows for mystery, thrillers, romance, etc. I’m a big cross-genre reader and didn’t want to limit myself. So, I conceived the idea of a multi-genre show where it might be sci-fi one night and police procedurals the next. The name came from my love of old-school coffee shops and my insane collection of vintage restaurant china. The “blue plate special” traditionally was a rotating menu item, usually offered at a lower cost. You never knew exactly what would be served on any given day.
