I was recently involved in a fun podcast with Sarah and Laura at the Clear Eyes, Full Shelves blog. I haven't listened to it yet (because I have a hard time listening to my recorded voice), but I totally invite you to do so. :-)

The topic we explored is "Personal Agency" and how it applies to characters in fiction (including my own) taking control of their own lives. We also veered off into sub-discussions about zombies, Vince Howard (a wonderful character on the TV series Friday Night Lights), and Courtney Summers (an author whom I ADORE).

We were very, very chatty, so the entire conversation is split into two parts. Sarah has put together posts at her blog for each part. Part 1 is here and Part 2 is here. I've gotten feedback that some listeners have learned a few things from what I had to say about my approach to writing, which is exciting to me. If you listen to the podcast, I hope you'll like it!
