So exciting to have a chance to talk to Jose Cardenas, host of the PBS program Horizonte, about the Veranda Cruz series! Arrived at the studio in downtown Phoenix, where I went up to the greenroom and met Mr. Cardenas. Turned out he read Blood’s Echo and really liked it! He asked me about the events in the story and about the culture and cuisine (said it made him hungry when he read it). Had a wonderful time with a gracious host!
