Have you ever read a great book or gotten hooked on a book series and felt like the favorite characters were friends of yours? Did you want to actually speak to the author to find out about how such a great story or stories were created? How did he or she come up with the characters, their names and personalities? What about amazing plots that kept you turning the pages? That's how I feel about one of the greatest and most prolific authors of our time, David Baldacci. His books are so well liked that they become New York Times best-sellers before they are even released. Baldacci is not only a NYT #1 best-selling author he's a #1 global best-seller and one of the world's favorite storytellers. He's been published in 45 languages in more than 80 countries with over 130 million world-wide sales. Well, he's done it again with the second episode of his newest main character, Atlee Pine, A Minute to Midnight. In my podcast Billz Buzz I get a chance to ask David those questions personally and here for you to enjoy and share... Show More

Brian Mudd and I started what is now AM Savannah on the 19th of February 2002.

We co-hosted the show for just over three years before he was promoted to operations manager at our West Palm Beach stations in Florida. Neve...
