"I very much enjoyed my interview with Hank Garner for the Author Stories Podcast. The questions were incisive, fun and entertaining, and we shared many laughs. I enjoyed being able to talk about the writing process. Great accent, too, and one I appreciated having grown up in a neighboring state! Thanks for having me on!"

It was a pleasure to be able to talk about my writing world with Hank Garner for the Author Stories Podcast. Hank’s questions made me think in different directions about my stories and my craft, and the common threads that might manifest through different things I’ve done. And he made me laugh as well, which is always a friendly thing on a school-day morning. Thanks for having me from the other side of the world.

"It's rare and lovely to get interviewed by someone who both knows their subject inside and out while being so adept at drawing knowledge (and laughs) from the person they're interviewing. I kind of want to move in with him."

"I was a fan of the Authors Stories podcast long before I was lucky enough to be a guest on the show. Hank never fails to deliver interesting and entertaining interviews that shine a light on what it’s like to live the life of a working writer regardless of whether or not you’re on the bestseller lists. It’s one of my top go-to shows for author interviews and I can’t recommend it highly enough to both writers and readers who want to see another side to their favorite authors. Everyone should check it out."
