Author Interview Podcast #1
This first podcast interview aired live in the Spring of 2012. In my talk with the host of Eat, Sleep, Write, I talk to host, Adam Scull, about the challenges of writing and publishing my debut novel, In The Spirit Of Love, the coming digital literary landscape, and much more.
Author Interview Podcast #2
Following the success of the first podcast, I was thrilled when the host of Eat, Sleep, Write, Adam Scull, asked me to pull together a second interview, consisting of a panel of two other paranormal mystery writers to talk about the differences in each sub-genre of paranormal mysteries, our challenges, similarities, and our processes. After I contacted USA Today Bestseller, Tonya Kappes (US), and Bestselling author, Karen Perkins (UK), I realized we had an international flavour for our talk that hadn't been addressed before. Listen to this fun, informative interview between the three of us as we answer Adam's questions about our writing journeys.
Author Interview Podcast #3
With the release of my second novel, In The Spirit Of Forgiveness, I was thrilled when Adam Scull, of Eat, Sleep, Write, invited me back to do a third interview about my latest release, where my writing journey had taken me, and what's next. Listen in to hear our discussion, and don't forget to add your comments on the Eat, Sleep, Write Podcast website!
