Interview: Interviewing Authors

[UPDATE ON JULY 29, 2015: I just took a look at this interview for the first time in a long time and realized that I offhandedly reference an old Bill Cosby routine. Yikes! The interview was conducted before the Cosby allegations became national news and at the time, I hadn’t heard about them at all. Obviously, there’s no way in the world I would make such a reference now! Just so you know…]

Tim Knox of Interviewing Authors spent close to an hour on the phone with me and the result is an interview that sprawls pretty much over my entire career. You can either read the transcript or listen to the podcast. (I would say listen because you get all of the inflections and nuances that way. But to each his or her own.)

See/hear me say stuff like:

“In young adult, I don’t think anything’s off limits. “

“I think there must be some point in time… I don’t know when it happens, maybe around 30, where they slip some sort of pill into the adult’s breakfast and we all forget how smart we were as kids.”

“Obviously I’ve never been a 16 year old girl”

Enjoy, y’all!

    When I look at your blog site in Ie, it looks fine
    but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, superb blog!
