Author Interviews

Below you’ll find my interviews with several authors whose works are on my bookshelf.  When I started this blog, I made one commitment to reading good work and, when possible, to telling others about the good work I read through interviews.  My approach to the authors has always been simple.  Even when I haven’t been able to engage some of them, my praise for their work stands and applauds and even shouts for their hard efforts before and behind their printed pages.  

I can’t interview everyone I read.  But I do read everyone I interview.  And like you, I become a fan of these folks, following them, believing in them, and waiting impatiently for what they’ll write next.  I’m happy to bring these interviews and answers to you and hope you’ll add these folks to your reading lists.  If you don’t read them, at least take a moment for celebrating the work and lives of these good people who’ve given us so much by publishing something informative, wonderful, engaging, beautiful, heart-grabbing, or all of the above.
