Episode 171 – Jamie Wyman

On December 3, 2013, in Podcast, by Patrick Hester

WildCardIn episode 171 of the Functional Nerds Podcast, Patrick Hester and John Anealio welcome Jamie Wyman, author of Wild Card.

About Jamie:

After a misspent adulthood pursuing a Music Education degree, JAMIE WYMAN fostered several interests before discovering that being an author means never having to get out of pajamas. (However, she can eat/spin fire, tell you a lot about auditioning to be a Blue Man, and read/write in Circular Gallifreyan.) As an author, Jamie’s favorite playgrounds are urban fantasy, horror and creepy carnival settings. When she’s not traipsing about with her imaginary friends, she lives in Phoenix with two hobbits and two cats. She is proud to say she has a deeply disturbed following at her blog.

Jamie’s debut novel, WILD CARD, will be coming to an e-reader near you November 2013 thanks to Entangled Publishing. You can also find her short story “The Clever One” in the anthology WHEN THE HERO COMES HOME 2 (Dragon Moon Press, August ’13).

  1. I remember (and saw) the Blue Man Group when they were a tiny little thing down in the Village. Didn’t get to drum with them, though, so I think Jamie wins the cool factor 🙂

  2. Jamie says:


    I don’t know about that. I didn’t make it. 😉 I did, however, get to snark off on the Chicago nightly news because the interviewer was being rather vapid. But that’s one of those stories that doesn’t translate as well to text. Cool factor or no, that audition was one of the best damn days of my life.
