My Podcast with AuthorsCast

Check out my interview with AuthorsCast.com:

Mark talks about this first foray into fiction writing, his motivations for writing a novel, and the five year effort to see the book through from concept to publication. He discusses how he uses his extensive background knowledge to imbue his story with a true sense of authenticity, in the tradition of literary influences like Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton. He goes on to discuss his own real-life work in the field, including how IT professionals are fighting back against malware, and other efforts now underway to make the Internet more secure.

Finally, he explains why he put sex scenes in the book, reveals how he got Bill Gates to provide a blurb, and speculates on who might play the lead characters in Zero Day: The Movie.
