You may know that Anthony Zuiker is the Creator of the hit television franchise CSI but what you may not know is that less than ten years ago, he was an $8/hour tram driver at a Las Vegas casino. He hated his job and he wondered if he'd ever become successful. Now, things have changed with CSI, CSI: Miami and CSI: New York, no other television creator/producer is hotter.

Now, with several hit series under his belt, Zuiker has turned his attention to the written page, books ... well, kind of. He's calling it a digi-novel and it very well could be the next evolution of the book. In his newest novel, Dark Prophecy: Level 26 Dark Origins, Zuiker infuses a character from his book into the tonight's episode of CSI so that viewers can enjoy both. Having read the novel, it's nothing short of amazing.

In my AUDIO interview with Zuiker today, he discusses CSI, his newest novel, his writing process, how he juggles being a father & husband with his work schedule and what he says every aspiring writer should know.
