Alma Katsu, author of Red Widow

On Episode #62 of The Thriller Zone, former Senior Intelligence Analyst for the CIA, NSA & RAND, ALMA KATSU joins the Top Secret Club known as "The TZ" to discuss secret stuff, higher education, writing advice & techniques.

On the show, Alma also discusses how she never originally set out to work for the CIA, but always wanted to write. So after 30+ years, she compresses all that thrilling espionage information in a page-turning thriller.

Oh, and wait until you hear the latest, greatest news: her books are going to TV! Man, talking about "Living the dream!"

Inside the show, Alma also shares the names of people who are thought leaders in the industry, all of whom have taken her under their wing to help advance her career....and what a career it has been, and continues to be.

Some of those professionals include her literary agents, Richard Pine & Eliza Rothstein of Inkwell Management, Angela Cheng Caplan, her Film Rights agent, her publicist Katie Grinch and her editor Sally Kim at Putnam.
