Peter Eichstaedt has written non-fiction books based on his reporting all over the world, from Kosovo to Armenia, Afghanistan and Uganda (among other stops).
He also published a book called The Dangerous Divide: Peril and Promise on the US-Mexico Border and that title won the 2015 International Latino Book Award for Best in Current Affairs.
It might not come as much of a surprise, then, that Peter’s first novel is a thriller called Borderland and it’s set on the US-Mexico Border, among other locations.
Borderland, published in March by Wild Blue Press, features reporter Kyle Dawson. On the podcast, Peter tells us about his first novel and making the switch from covering stories to making them up.
