Boo Walker – Turn Or Burn

Cover fromTurn or Burn 300Boo Walker 300Boo Walker has had a colorful career. Here’s the official biography:

He spent his College of Charleston years and a few after in Nashville as a banjoist and songwriter for the avant-garde punchgrass band, The Biscuit Boys. Some hand problems knocked him out of the game, and he stumbled into a position with a short term equity trading firm based out of Mt. Pleasant, SC. To feed his ravenous muse, he began writing his first novel, Lowcountry Punch. Around that time, what started as a passion in wine became a neurosis.

After six years of the Wall Street thing, Boo decided it was time to end his sedentary, computer-driven lifestyle. He grew out a handlebar mustache and moved clear across the country into a double-wide trailer situated on 5 acres of Malbec vines just down the road from Hedges Family Estate on Red Mountain in Washington State. The Hedges family took him in and taught him the art of farming and the old world philosophies of wine. He now travels North America peddling the family’s juice, and chances are you can find him in an airport somewhere working on his next novel.

We’ll add that, like your interviewer, he’s a huge fan of John D. MacDonald’s Travis Mcgee  series character, and his own character, Harper Knox, is equally compelling. You can hear our interview by clicking the grey podcast bar below:

    Boo, we have not met, but at the suggestion of your cousin Charlotte McKeller, I have read and enjoyed both of your novels on my Kindle.

    Like your other fans I can’t wait for the third. I love novels that intrique. I like the right amount of background you use. I feel like I know what I want to and am not ready to start calling out “Enough information” I was interested in your interview. It is my opinion that someone who has traveled and left home, but does not forget family (Charlotte has told me of the wonderful family and beautiful wife you have)
