McCardell has earned the loyalty of hundreds of thousands of fans for his tongue-in-cheek investigative reporting and human-interest stories.

He is the author of the bestselling Unlikely Love Stories, Here’s Mike, Chasing the Story God, Back Alley Reporter, Getting to the Bubble, The Expanded Reilly Method and Everything Works as well as The Blue Flames That Keep Us Warm, a national best-seller and BC Book Prize finalist.
