I’ve been using Blubrry Podcasting as my hosting service for my podcast for years and it’s one of the best decisions I ever made. They give great customer service, you’re in complete control of your own podcast, you can run it from your own website, and it just takes a lot of the work out of podcasting for me.

I’ve included an affiliate link on this blog.Download a copy of the PDF transcript of this episode here.[00:46] Debbi: Hi, everyone. Our guest this week is a comic book writer and editor who's best known as the co-creator of Deadpool, a movie I have yet to see, by the way.[1:00] Fabian: Brace yourself.[01:02] Debbi: So I've heard. He's also the author of some wickedly funny mysteries if the first one is anything to judge by, including the Edgar Award-nominated first novel, Suburban Dicks. I'm pleased to have with me today-- How do you pronounce it? Is it Fabian Nicieza?[1:31] Fabian: Ah, that was almost perfect there, Debbi. I really congratulate you. You fall under the 0.01% of Americans who pronounce it properly. The way I say it is in Spanish. It's Fabian Nicieza. In English, it's Fabian Nicieza. And often in American, it's Fabian Niconza. But you did perfectly.[1:55] Debbi: Nicieza.[1:56] Fabian: Nicieza[1:57] Debbi: Nicieza. I like the español pronunciation?[2:02] Fabian: Español. Well, I'm from Argentina originally and it's a Spanish name from Spain. Yeah. So my grandparents emigrated from northern Spain to Argentina in the early 1900s.[2:14] Debbi: Well, Fabian Nicieza, welcome to the show. And I'm glad to have you here.[2:20] Fabian: Thank you, Debbi. It's a pleasure to be here.[2:21] Debbi: Wonderful. When I started reading that first book, just based on the look inside feature, it didn't take long for me to start laughing out loud, literally. All I can say is, "God, what a first chapter!" You really know how to pull a person into the story.[2:41] Fabian: I appreciate that. I had about 20 years to make sure that I had it right. That's how long it took me to write the book from my original-- I mean, I had the original idea for the book, based on things that were happening in my real life, and I just extrapolated it into fiction. It really extrapolated as an end result. But that opening chapter quite honestly, was something that I'd already conceived of in 1995. I had the book's beginning, middle and an end, and characters really well thought out back then. I just either never wrote it because I had other paying work I had to do, or I was never confident with my own prose.

EP49: 5CQ with Fabian Nicieza, Author of THE SELF-MADE WIDOW

Five Compelling Questions with Shawn

Shawn and Fabian chat about writing across mediums, anger & insecurity as motivating factors in careers, writing for yourself, doing your own thing, and the coffee habits of exhausted suburbanites.  About the Author: Fabian Nicieza is best known as a comic book writer for Marvel and DC, and as the co-creator of Deadpool. He has also written X-Men, X-Force, New Warriors, Cable, Thunderbolts, and many more. He developed the story world and created the characters for the 2021 animated series, Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten. Suburban Dicks, Nicieza’s debut novel, was published by Penguin Putnam in 2021. About the Book: After mother of five and former FBI profiler Andie Stern solved a murder—and unraveled a decades old conspiracy—in her New Jersey town, both her husband and the West Windsor police hoped that she would set aside crime-fighting and go back to carpools, changing diapers, and lunches with her group of mom-friends, who she secretly calls The Cellulitists. Even so, Andie can’t help but get involved when the husband of Queen Bee Molly Goode is found dead. Though all signs point to natural causes, Andie begins to dig into the case and soon risks more than just the clique’s wrath, because what she discovers might hit shockingly close to home. Meanwhile, journalist Kenny Lee is enjoying a rehabilitated image after his success as Andie’s sidekick. But when an anonymous phone call tips him off that Molly Goode killed her husband, he’s soon drawn back into the thicket of suburban scandals, uncovering secrets, affairs, and a huge sum of money. Hellbent on justice and hoping not to kill each other in the process, Andie and Kenny dust off their suburban sleuthing caps once again.
