This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 157 with Dan and Robert Zangari.
Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy and Sci-Fi Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.
This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in
Kicking things off this week with my author update, I’m just about finished the first draft of The Paramedic’s Sorceress, book 9 in the Extreme Medical Services series. After I finish that, I’ll be working on two quick short stories that will appear in two upcoming urban fantasy anthologies. I’ll have more information on them coming up later this spring. I’m sure you’ll want to grab a copy of them to read my stories and all the others.
You can catch up with more information on what I’m up to, including some early looks at excerpts from the new book over in my Fun Fantasy Readers Facebook group. I post sneak peeks of upcoming covers, special giveaways, and more, by visiting my fan group on Facebook, Jamie’s Fun Fantasy Readers and over at my website and blog, JamieDavisBooks.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
This week on the show, I chat with father/son author team Dan and Robert Zangari. Dan Zangari was born in 1960 and raised in the Mojave desert as an only child. Throughout his childhood, he discovered his first love, reading. At a young age he had become an avid reader, digesting fantasy and science fiction.
Robert Zangari was born in 1986 in Southern California and is an only child. Much akin to his father, this younger Zangari was drawn to the world of storytelling. At a young age, his father shared with him the stories of Almar, Iltar and the dragons of Lorn; in essence, his father’s tales were his first introduction to the world of fantasy.
Now they collaborate on the stories from the Tales of the Amulet series, an epic fantasy saga that has twelve planned installments. Check out my interview with the two of them about their first book, A Prince’s Errand, coming right up.
