The Interviews 2

This page is the easy route to find the various interviews I’ve conducted, mostly for Words with JAM magazine (Thanks to editor JD Smith for permission to reproduce).  Lots more to come …

The 60 Second Interview involves twelve questions on books and writing. Plus the Joker – the wild card which can reveal so much.
