I’m a Pod(cast) Person

I’ve blogged about The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, MD before. It’s a great place for writers of all types: fiction, non-fiction, rookie, experienced, young, old, published, unpublished.

I’ve also blogged about the advertising campaign I was thrilled to be involved in. You know, the one where my ominous face appears on DC Metrobuses along with a quote:

“Attending workshops at The Writer’s Center was—without a doubt—the biggest factor in my improvement as a writer.”

Now, I’m honored to be part of their podcast interview series, alongside other writers Angela Davis-Gardner, Kelli Stanley, Alan Cheuse, and Alice McDermott.

The free podcast can be heard here, and it is available (also free!) on iTunes.

Thanks to ace interviewer Art Taylor (a 2011 Derringer Award winner) for making me sound a lot better than I am, and to Kyle Semmel of The Writer’s Center for asking me to participate!


Doing the podcast interview was a lot of fun, but I’m anticipating having even more fun this Sunday, May 22 at 2:00 at The Writer’s Center. That’s because I’ll be doing a joint reading (it’s free, too!) with my first instructor there, Ann McLaughlin. I’ll be reading from KILLER ROUTINE, and she’ll be reading from her latest novel, A TRIAL IN SUMMER.

It's a friendly face, not an ominous one!

Good luck with your reading and thanks for the link to the podcast!
