Author, Can I Ask You?

Hi there from Joni B. Cole, author of "Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier." This podcast gives me the chance to ask notable writers a non-writing-related question that lets me (and you!) get to know them just a little bit better as a person. Plus, writers being writers, we can't help but throw in a little conversation about craft and the creative process, just for the fun of it. Eavesdrop along with a new episode every Thursday.
