Bringing Combat Expertise to Fantasy Worlds with Joseph Malik

This is the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast Episode 67 with Joseph Malik.

Good day and welcome to this episode of the Books and Authors Fantasy Podcast. I’m your host, podcaster and author of Fun Fantasy Reads, Jamie Davis. This podcast is exactly what the title says it is, a show focused on everything in fantasy books.

This show will cover everything to do with fantasy books. From Epic Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Sword and Sorcery, and everything in between, expect to find the best and brightest authors from all the various corners of the fantasy book world. Plus we’ll add in a few other very special guests as well along the way.

Let’s kick off the episode with my update for the week. I’m prepping to start writing book 8 in the Extreme Medical Services series this week. I’m looking forward to getting back to Dean Flynn’s adventures as a paramedic to supernatural creatures. He’s going to get into the middle of a human (sort of human) trafficking operation bringing vulnerable women and children into Elk City. Dean has to get to the bottom of it and break up the ring of supernatural traffickers. I hope to have it out early in 2020.

It’s always fun revisiting this series and world where a select group of paramedics treat supernatural creatures in their city. The first book in the series is free for a limited time wherever you shop for ebooks. Pick up a copy of Extreme Medical Services now.

As always, if you’re interested in more information on what I’m up to, check out my fan group on Facebook, Jamie’s Fun Fantasy Readers and on my website and blog,

Now let’s get into our author interview for this episode. I’m excited to have Joseph Malik on the show this week. He writes and lectures on advanced intelligence theory and asymmetric warfare for the U.S. military. He’s worked as a stuntman, a high-rise window washer, a computational linguist, a touring rock musician, and a soldier in the United States Special Operations Command.

A longtime panelist and demonstrator at fantasy conventions, Joseph speaks as an expert in swordsmanship, hand to hand combat, and military tactics and strategy. His first novel, Dragon’s Trail, became a Kindle Top 100 Bestseller in four countries.
