Notes from All Over

I thoroughly enjoyed the coffee and conversation last month when fiction editors Tara Gilboy and Thomas Ward interviewed me for the online version of the Straylight, the University of Wisconsin-Parkside literary magazine:

The interview covers a wide range of topics, including the process of researching and writing Plank Road Summer and tips for writers trying to land an agent or a publisher.  Fans of Plank Road Summer will appreciate learning about the characters and plot of the sequel, which is currently a work in progress.

In my conversation with Tara and Tom, I spoke at length about the struggles of shaping a writing life. After reading the Straylight article, a friend chose to feature my story in a post on his blog, Minding the Workplace.  You can read David Yamada’s article “Embracing Creative Dreams at Midlife” here:

And in case you just can’t get enough of the Demuth sisters, you can find another interview (and a book giveaway contest) at Read These Books and Use Them!, the blog of teacher/editor/historical fiction writer Margo Dill:
