Here’s the link to my NaPoMo interview with Francesca Rheannon, on A Writer’s Voice. I had a really lousy head cold when we talked, but folks who’ve heard it say I sound smart. And I didn’t pay them.
Francesca asked me about my Pokey Mama journey—the struggles I had writing as a woman and mother after my kids were born; what’s changed for women writers and what hasn’t. That’s where I gave a shout out to the VIDA count, which shows that as far as publishing is concerned, not enough progress has been made. But we’re working on it, right?
You have to skip to the second half of the show for my interview, but you might want to listen to the first part, too. Great piece with Leah Vincent, who talks about her memoir Cut Me Loose: Sin and Salvation After My Ultra-Orthodox Girlhood.
