Interview with Matt Buchman

Season 1: Episode 3


We connected from our homes to do this virtual interview. I’m not sure where Matt was with that screen behind him. It could be anywhere in his house. I want a screen like that now. <smile> For those who have difficulty hearing the video or audio podcast, you can download a transcript below.

About This Podcast

Interview with USA Today bestselling author, M. L. “Matt” Buchman. He has 60+ novels in action-adventure thrillers, and contemporary and military romance. Also a prolific short story writer, he’s published over 100 short stories and narrated a lot of his own audiobooks.

Publisher’s Weekly says about his Miranda Chase thrillers, “Tom Clancy fans open to a strong female lead will clamor for more.” Three times, Booklist chose one of Matt’s books for their  “Top 10 Romance of the Year” designation, and among “The 20 Best Romantic Suspense Novels: Modern Masterpieces.” NPR and B&N have chosen Matt’s books in the: “Best 5 Romance of the Year.”

A thirty-year project manager with a geophysics degree, he’s designed and built houses, flown and jumped out of planes, solo-sailed a 50’ sailboat, and bicycled solo around the world…and he quilts. I think of him as a renaissance man one rarely meets in today’s world.

Though we talk about his diverse career, we spend the most time on his Miranda Chase series and how he’s migrated from writing a contemporary romances to roantic suspense and now thrillers. But he’s not only writing thrillers. He’s still putting creating new stories in romance, mystery, and suspense. Learn more about Matt and his books at his website

You can also catch him on Facebook and  Twitter. If you are interested in further information or interviews, Matt has done a number of interviews around both his fiction books and his nonfiction. He has them all linked here on his Interviews Page.
