Interviews 83-86

Oh geeze, I’ve missed posting the author interviews I’ve done on TBPL Off the Shelf since April! So here’s a list of all four, including yesterday’s interview. 🙂

In May I interviewed Elle Andra-Warner about researching historical subjects, travel writing, and the most interesting facts she learned about the lighthouses of the North Short of Lake Superior.

In June I interviewed Eleanor Albanese about what drew her to fiction writing from theatre, how her fiction writing process differs from her theatre process, and the role of midwives in rural Northern Ontario a century ago.

In August I interviewed Roy Blomstrom about writing a wide variety of forms and genres, what drew him to science fiction for his newest novel, and writing a multiverse.

And this month I interviewed Martha Wells about where she got the idea for Murderbot, writing engaging AI characters, and her newest book, Fugitive Telemetry.
