My friend Paul Stinson has started a cool new podcast called Make It Big! It’s all about exploring the meaning of success in the arts. In my case, he was interested in how a one-time music career led me into writing mystery/crime fiction, and what the similarities are between the two.
He and I spoke for an hour-and-a-half after my Noir Slam reading at The Last Bookstore in downtown LA a week ago. It’s a long interview, but he asks some great questions and it was good to catch up with him. The kind of conversation you’d expect two old friends to have over drinks, only with microphones.
Make It Big! is still pretty new, but it’s a great concept. I can’t wait to see where he takes it. Stoked he let me be part of it. Enjoy!
