About The Author Stories Podcast

anne_rice_interviewI started the Author Stories Podcast in the fall of 2014 because I wanted to listen to authors tell their stories. I wanted to know what made creative people tick, and I am fascinated by the journey that people take to get to where they are. I looked for a podcast that fit the bill and couldn’t find one, so I started the show that I wanted to listen to. I reached out to a few authors, and they were generous with their time and wisdom. over two years later, and now two shows a week, and ASP is still going strong.

Interview with Fantasy author Brandon SandersonI focus on authors from all backgrounds, genres, indie or trad-pub. None of those distinctions really matter to me, I just love to listen to authors talk, and I believe that I have become a better writer by spending time learning about the craft from some of the best writers in the world.
