Today I am joined by Tad Williams, author of the new book The Witchwood Crown. We talk about his journey to becoming a writer, how his pet cats helped him break into publishing, what a post -Tolkien world looked like to him, writing characters that are the heroes of their own stories, why fantasy is an important genre to explore, returning to Osten Ard, the ever-evolving landscape of publishing, and much more.
