Meet the Staff – Thrillerville

In the lead up to the final chapter of the Scott Wolfe Series, I’ll be building a few side projects, visiting several of the main characters in the series. With a selfie culture in tow, I’d like to introduce the A Team from the first book in the series, my debut novel and the first…

I don’t blame you if you’ve forgotten about me. I know you’re…
