A desperate fit of giggles sabotaged this interview by Kid Five. We cut them off of both ends of the video clip and even so, you can hear the clothes dryer beep at the end of our author interview, sealing our fate as forever amateur fireside chatterers.
We’re going to make some new ones up in Idyllwild, outside among the pines. After the weather turns. You know my feelings about snow.
Although, now that I consider it, it’s hard to have a fit of giggles when you’re about to freeze to death.
In this episode, Kid Five asks me about what literary success looks like. Moms everywhere will relate to my answer. Have I ever Googled myself? What is the most difficult part of my artistic process? Do I believe in writer’s block? How much content did I have to edit out of The Great Loveda Brown before publishing it?
This video was supposed to be three and a half minutes. We settled for short, sweet, and to the point. Then we went to fold laundry. Enjoy.
