Landis Wade writes legal thrillers, mysteries, and essays. He is a recovering trial lawyer (after 35 years of law practice) and founder of Charlotte Readers Podcast (where he interviewed more than 500 authors). With the help of his podcast co-hosts, he published The Write Quotes series, an 8 book collection that feature inspirational and practical quotes about writing and the writing life from authors in more than 33 states and four countries. His novel Deadly Declarations won ten awards, including the 2022 American Fiction Award Winner in the Cozy Mystery category. His short pieces have been featured in Writersdigest.comThe Charlotte ObserverFlying South, and in several anthologies, and his short story, The Deliberation, won the 2016 North Carolina State Bar short story contest. As an active participant in the North Carolina writing community, he often speaks about writing and what he’s learned from other authors. To learn more about Landis, his books, and the podcast, see: www.landiswade.com.
