Dust Jackets: Conversations with Authors

Dust Jackets: Conversations with Authors

Maggie Lynch interviews a variety of authors of both fiction and nonfiction. Rather than focus on a particular book or selling their latest release, we focus on the author as a career writer. Why this career? What motivates them? Are there common themes in their work? Do they write series or stand-alone books? Where are they in their career and where do they want to be in the next three to five years. Creatives are always interesting, fun, and I learn something every time.
