Literary New England Radio Show

Hi everyone,

It was a special pleasure to chat recently with Literary New England Radio Show host Cindy Wolfe Boynton about my new YA novel, Will Poole’s Island. We discussed the genesis of the book, some of the historical research that went into it, the extent to which the protagonist is an autobiographical figure, and my version of the 21st century writing life. Cindy asked good questions, and I read a brief excerpt from Chapter Four of the book. All in all, a very worthwhile and enjoyable conversation!

The show, which also features distinguished New England authors Deborah Harkness, Erika Johansen, and Courtney Maum, aired on Monday, July 14, 2014. It’s available as a podcast for you to download and hear at your own leisure by clicking here. My portion of the interview begins at minute 38:50. Toward the end I managed to work in a little plug for WCSU MFA. Enjoy!
