Janet Benton talks about writing and researching her debut novel Lilli De Jong, and tells us why Kirkus Reviews called it a “monumental achievement.” Author Jamie Ford adds:“A powerful, authentic voice for a generation of women whose struggles were erased from history—a heart-smashing debut that completely satisfies.”
She has worked at magazines and newspapers and taught at four colleges, as well as running the writer’s workshop The Word Studio. Find out about all this and more on the LIARS CLUB ODDCAST (and check out Jon McGoran, Bill Russell, and a host of others).
Liars Club member, thriller writer Jon McGoran (Dead Out, Dust Up) moves from the interviewer side of the table for this week’s wild and crazy Oddcast. He talks about his character Doyle Carrick, about writing under a pen name, and about his latest, a tie-in novel to the series Blacklist.
Tony-nominated writer Bill Russell has written the books and lyrics for dozens of highly acclaimed Broadway and off-Broadway shows. He’s the author of Sideshow, and his AIDS-focused play, Elegies for Angels, has been produced in nine countries. He sat down with the Liars Club members including me, Jon McGoran, Merry Jones, and Keith Strunk for a lively discussion about playwriting and activism. Recorded February 2017.
