Would you consider the audio edition of Fire on the Flight Deck to be better than the print version?

I'm not sure. I enjoyed getting carried away in the actual telling of the tale.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Fire on the Flight Deck?

The events on the flight deck in the book's opening.

Which scene was your favorite?

Rather than a particular scene, I enjoyed the total story. It was woven like a tapestry. There was rich detail behind the making of Donley as a man. Revealing the mundane, grueling, sometimes funny but time-honored road from Boot Camp was like an investment that paid dividends when trial by fire came.

Any additional comments?

When Kristin Chapman agrees to let her husband, Richard, host his brother's bachelor party, she expects a certain amount of debauchery. She brings their young daughter to Manhattan for the evening, leaving her Westchester home to the men and their hired entertainment. What she does not expect is this: bacchanalian drunkenness, her husband sharing a dangerously intimate moment in the guest room, and two women stabbing and killing their Russian bodyguards before driving off into the night.

What did you love best about The Guest Room?

An ordinary man makes a marginal choice and life will never be ordinary again. Everyday life overlayed with a view of intense darkness.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes, it was seriously engrossing.

What about Mozhan Marno and Grace Experience ’s performance did you like?

They were perfect.

Abel Yeager is dead broke, down on his luck, and suffering from a serious case of what-the-hell-does-it-matter. His transition from active Marine to stateside long-haul trucker hit a wicked speed bump when his rig was involved in a wreck that claimed the life of a pregnant woman and laid him up for several months. Back at work but deeply in debt, Yeager meets bookstore owner Charlie Buchanan in St. Louis and jumps at the chance to haul a load of remainder books to Austin for her.

If you could sum up Yeager's Law in three words, what would they be?

A fun ride

Who was your favorite character and why?

Yeager was relatable. As a middle-aged truck driver just trying to do his job, he stepped up with action when he had to but could be swept off his feet by love.

What does J. Scott Bennett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brought an authentic Texas sound to the character.

Any additional comments?

With so many bad guys, it was hard to keep score.
