The State of Things, McIntyre’s Books, Utter Craziness, Dogs and Cats Living Together

Where do I begin? How about at the beginning? I’m a writer–seems like a good place. I just finished an interview and reading with North Carolina Public Radio’s “The State of Things”. It was both a blast and a blur–Frank Stasio and the amazing folks at WUNC do an incredible job of making you feel comfortable and welcome. It was mostly the forming coherent thoughts that I had to muddle through. The piece will run Wednesday, June 26. For those of you outside NC, you can listen via live streaming, podcast, or RSS feed by going to “The State of Things” page at

UPDATE: You can listen to my segment HERE.

The appearance on TSOT (I get to call it that now that I’ve been a guest), is in anticipation of my reading/signing/Q&A at McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village on Sunday, June 30th at 2PM. I hope to see lots of faces that afternoon, both familiar and new. Please come by. You can get more info about McIntyre’s at

For anyone in the Triangle area, you can find Bring Me Back in print at McIntyre’s Fine Books in Fearrington Village, Flyleaf Books in Chapel Hill, Schoolkids Records in Raleigh, and The Regulator Bookshop in Durham. If you don’t see it, ask for it!

As for utter craziness, that mostly refers to intricacies of managing summer vacation with two kids when you’re trying to write a book. The dogs and cats living together is just because I love a good movie quote, but I can usually only remember that one and, “No more yanky my wanky, the Donger need food.”

Stay cool! xoxo

  1. Yay, I’m excited to listen next week. Glad that I can get the podcast because there is no such thing as listening to the radio and finding a cassette with enough room left on it to get what you want off the radio!

  2. LOL–I hear ya on the radio/cassette equation. I can’t wait to hear how the interview turned out. I might need to get a report from you. Not sure I can listen to it myself!
