It’s episode 175 with Joey Hartstone, successful screenwriter turned debut novelist with his legal thriller, The Local. Joey and I talk about his journey from writing for the screen to becoming a published author, finding stories that matter to you and why he outlines so thoroughly before starting a project.

Joey Hartstone is a film and television writer who, as you’ll hear, often wishes he was a lawyer. He has a master’s degree in screenwriting and has written two feature films, LBJ and Shock and Awe, as well as working as a television writer and producer on The Good Fight and Showtime’s legal thriller Your Honor. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife and son and The Local is out right now everywhere you can buy great books.
