Today I've added another continent to the 9mm series, with my first interview with a South American author.
Leighton Gage is the author of the acclaimed Chief Inspector Mario Silva Series, set in Brazil. Gage has lived and worked on six continents. He visited Spain in the time of Franco, Portugal in the time of Salazar, South Africa in the time of apartheid, Chile in the time of Pinochet, Argentina in the time of the junta, Prague, East Germany and Yugoslavia under the Communist yoke. He is fluent in three languages and conversant in three more. He and his wife spend much of their time in Brazil, her native country, although they also divide their time with France, the Netherlands and the United States, where Gage's daughters live.
