Meet JP O’Donnell, a retired dentist and professor who decided to take a crack at writing a captivating detective novel.  He did, with two more to follow.  JP (aka Joe) has written “Fatal Gamble,” “Deadly Codes,” and “Pulse of My Heart,” all of them featuring a tough Boston PI named Gallagher.  Joe has enjoyed much success with the books and was lucky enough to attract the attention of Hollywood.  A feature length motion pictured called “Bent” (2018) was produced based on a combination of plot points in the novels.  The film starred Karl Urban and Sofia Vergara.
Joe is hard at work on his next one and has even published his first children’s book. I was honored to be the narrator for all three Gallagher audio books and can’t wait to work on the next one.  We talk detectives, really colorful bad guys, sitting on set watching one’s characters come to life and more!
