YA author Sara Zarr (Story of a Girl and many other fine novels) is not only a novelist, but a podcast host! Her podcast, This Creative Life, is one of my favorites. She always has suh interesting conversations with her guests about writing, creativity, and life while writing and being creative (the title doesn’t lie!). Anyway, I’ve been listening to her podcast for some time now, so I was really excited when Sara recently asked me to be a guest on it. We talked last week, and the podcast is now available. You can listen to it at Sara’s website or via iTunes or Stitcher (search for This Creative Life).
In the conversation we discuss a variety of things including my family history in China, my teenage reading of Dragonlance (Raistlin forever! although I didn’t manage to get that into the conversation), and the amazing creative experience I had recently collaborating with some other wonderful writers on a Secret Project that is coming later this year.
So, take a listen! And check out the rest of the This Creative Life podcast episodes too because they’re great.
