Burt Weissbourd's ROUGH JUSTICE and More

Returning guest Burt Weissbourd is a novelist, screenwriter, and producer of feature films. Today he talks about ROUGH JUSTICE, the latest book in his "Callie & Cash" thriller series, his thoughts on streaming TV as the place for writers to direct their efforts, the role of food in his writing, and much more.

He was born in 1949 and graduated cum laude from Yale University with honors in psychology. During his student years, he volunteered at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris and taught English to college students in Thailand. After he graduated, he wrote, directed, and produced educational films for Gilbert Altschul Productions. He began a finance program at the Northwestern University Graduate School of Business but left in his final semester to start his own film production company in Los Angeles. 

He managed that company from 1977 until 1986, producing films including Ghost Story starring Fred Astaire, Melvyn Douglas, John Houseman, and Douglas Fairbanks Jr, and Raggedy Man starring Sissy Spacek and Sam Shepard, which The New York Times called "a movie of sweet, low-keyed charm." In 1987, he founded an investment business, which he still runs. Burt’s novels include the thrillers Danger in Plain Sight, The Corey Logan Trilogy (Inside Passage, Teaser, and Minos), and In Velvet, which is set in Yellowstone National Park.
