My life is weird. I spend time interviewing others for stories at The Charleston City Paper, and then every so often, I have people who want to interview ME about books and/or stories I've written. It gets a little spinny sometimes. Yesterday I even had a friend realize she remembered reading a story about me last year, before we even knew each other! So weird!
BUT...I am honored and thrilled to be able to let you know about an interview I did this week, and a brand new podcast in which I was excited to take part.
New Worlds Podcast is an up-and-coming literary podcast, in which host Lawrence Rosales reads original works of genre fiction (fantasy, sci-fi, horror) and then interviews the writer. When he asked me if I'd participate, I pretty much said, "Heck yes, where do I sign up??"
I sent him one of my favorite stories I've written, called Driving After Dark. Then this week we took some time to sit down and chat via Skype, and the interview is at the end of the podcast.
I had a great time chatting with Lawrence. He was kind and calm and didn't mind when I had to step away for a second to attend to Zoe, who was in bed but refusing to sleep because of COURSE she'd pick that night to be bouncy. And, you know, when my internet connection bombed out three times over the course of the call (*shakes fist at Comcast*), he was completely chill.
We laughed a lot, I rambled a bit, and the resulting podcast is now up for your enjoyment.
Here! Go check it out! I'd love to hear what you think of the story, interview, or anything!!
