Interview with Andy Weir author of the Martian

Author Stories Podcast Episode 50 | Andy Weir Interview


This week is episode 50 of Author Stories, and my guest is Andy Weir.  Andy authored a book called The Martian that is soon to be released as a motion picture starring Matt Damon.  Andy’s path to publishing is a fascinating and mind blowing story.

To celebrate our 50th episode, I am giving away a copy of The Martian audiobook.  Leave a comment below to be entered. I will draw a winner on August 17, 2015.

Here is the trailer for The Martian:

About Andy:

ANDY WEIR was first hired as a programmer for a national laboratory at age fifteen and has been working as a software engineer ever since. He is also a lifelong space nerd and a devoted hobbyist of subjects like relativistic physics, orbital mechanics, and the history of manned spaceflight. The Martian is his first novel.

Author Stories is now on Youtube.  You can listen to the episode here or on our channel.

I'm Hank and I'm a writer. I write stories about life, but with a supernatural twist. I love the art of writing so much that I started a podcast called Author Stories.
I'd love to hear from you.
