A worthy benefit for a beautiful library. Lucky Ride and I greatly enjoyed ourselves and were thrilled to be invited.
Everyone was warm and welcoming, and I loved talking about literature and answering questions about my books and my writing journey.
My irreverent sixties road novel was released one year ago.
Thanks to Unsolicited Press and everyone who hopped on the ride so far!

Thank you to Kim Smuga-Otto and Renee K. Nelson for including me in their podcast! You can find my comments at 5:22, but you might enjoy the entire podcast episode.
I respond to Jack M. Bickham’s concept of sequels from his writing craft book Scene & Structure. Bingham calls sequels the glue that holds scenes together, in that scenes build on the action of previous scenes.
Kim’s provocative questions led me to describe how the structure of my novel Lucky Ride includes scenes that both enforce and violate Bingham’s tenets and assumptions. It was great fun.
I recommend the Words to Write by podcast for any writer who wishes they had time to read seminal writing craft books, including those from John Gardner and Ray Bradbury. Kim and Renee apply insight and wit to boil the books down to their basics, and they take on a different chapter or concept in each episode. Think of it as eating your dessert first.
I enjoyed interviewing with author and blogger Anthony Avina. He asked insightful questions about my novel Lucky Ride and my writing process.
