Placing Literature

I was recently invited to take part in a very cool website,, where authors (and readers) are encouraged to map each scene of their books on a real-world map.

The map is integrated with every other entry, so you can see CJ Lyons’s cool settings outside of my boyhood home, Pittsburgh, or even historical characters like Mark Twain.

I’m featured from August 15 – September 15, so if you get a chance, go take a look at my entry for A Reason to Live! I describe the scene, setting, and little behind-the-scenes tidbits when I can.

podcastAlso, Tim Knox of was kind enough to do a 10 minute podcast interview on behalf of Placing Literature. We cover the importance of setting in my particular brand of fiction. You can listen to it here.


Writer of crime fiction, psychological drama, and dark humor.
