It’s finally happened: the Canadian Broadcast Corporation is covering my debut novel. It’s starting with this feature on the CBC Canada Writes website composed of parts of the transcript from a bit of radio we recorded. The audio itself should eventually air on the programme that might be the gold standard of literary journalism in this country, CBC Radio’s The Next Chapter.
Things got a bit weird when they asked me what music I was listening to while writing the book. But let’s face it: weird, odd, strange, peculiar have been our watchwords all along this journey.
Read it here.
That’s so exciting. Congratulations!
I love that you wrote in bed while your sons played Lego all around you. I don’t know how you did it while they chattered away at you, but you probably get really good at it if you have to. 🙂 I put in a request for your book at our library- it should be in soon!
Glad to hear it! And about the kids, my sister-in-law, another mother and writer, says if you can’t stop yourself from working on something, it’s the right thing. I think she’s right.
