This week on the Oddcast, the wonderful novelist and short story writer Karen Joy Fowler, author of works such as The Jane Austen Book Club and the PEN/Faulkner Award winning novel We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, discusses her writing career, how and why she came to literature of the fantastic first, a writing process of creating the outline last, and wisdom received from other authors she has known. A great, delightful interview with the amazing Ms. Fowler.
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.
