Frank Marcopolos founded "The Whirligig" literary magazine in 1999, which has been called "a landmark, demonstrating the power of the literary underground." It has been said that "you get this true lion-roaring sense that Editor Frank Marcopolos knows what he likes, and how to read, and how to publish, and he has guts, and eats insects on Wheaties with bleach." His long-form fiction has been reviewed with such praise as "thorough-goingly entertaining" and "highly readable...recalls the style of Michael Chabon or John Irving. A literary gem that should not be missed." A broadcasting-school graduate, his unique literary-audio work has been featured in movie trailers, scholastic environments, and on YouTube, with one of his audiobooks achieving over 100,000 "views" there.


  1. i thoroughly enjoyed listening to this interview & listening to her voice and laughter.

  2. Yes I will. Yes, I will indeed.

  3. First off, Ann is hilarious. Her impression of you pre- and post-writing group is golden.

    Second, did I get called out not once but twice? Sheesh. Where do I apply for this co-host gig anyway? I was hoping the salary would start in the low 40s. But I could do mid-30s with options.

    1. Hey Mike. Don’t worry. My people will do lunch with your people.

  4. Great interview, I’m about a third of the way through NVSQVAM. So far I love it, and will leave a review on Amazon when I’m finished. Ann is every bit the delicate flower I imagined her to be.

    1. Thanks, Rod. I’m sure Ann will appreciate you taking the time to post a review on Amazon. Awesomesauce.
