    Rolling Thunder by Chris Grabenstein

    If you pick up the new mystery, Rolling Thunder, from author Chris Grabenstein (www.chrisgrabenstein.com), you’ll come across a familiar name: that of WBGO news anchor and reporter Andrew Meyer.  Rolling thunder is the sixth book in Grabenstein’s popular John Ceepak series, set in Sea Haven, a town created by Chris set down the Jersey Shore.  There’s a character in the new book named Andrew Meyer who, appropriately enough, works at the local radio station.  Andrew has enjoyed interviewing Chris in the past for the WBGO Journal and is especially looking forward to talking to him about the new book!

    You can listen to Andrew's interview with this author this Friday on the WBGO Journal.
