How does a mystery thriller writer get inside the criminal mind? Why are we, the avid readers, fascinated by murder mysteries whilst surrounded by real-world horrors and crime? These are some of the questions I ask award-winning author Carole Lawrence after reading her newest book, Cleopatra’s Dagger, late into the night. Set in Manhattan in the last decade of the 19th century, Carole’s protagonist takes us into “old money” society teas, notorious seedy dives, and the icy morgue, mixing and mingling with characters we grow to love and hate.

Restoration and remediation expert Michael Rubino joins me today to discuss his critical work and book The Mold Medic.  We uncover the often unnoticed way that mold can form and proliferate in our homes, even in dry climates like New Mexico.  How our health can be seriously compromised by the biotoxins mold produces and how to prevent mold in the first place.  Michael is not a medical professional himself but consults with doctors and specialists who are putting together the puzzle pieces of medical mysteries that appear to mimic other illnesses but are, in fact, caused by dangerous mold and bacteria on our homes. www.themoldmedic.com  An interview not to be missed.
