The Good Word Podcast

Books-Podcast-Logo2-300x300This past spring I was interviewed on the Good Word Podcast. The host, Nick Galieti, interviewed as many of the Whitney finalists as he could during April and May, and since then he’s been posting several interviews a month. In this interview we chat about the Whitney Awards, the proper use (or misuse) of a thesaurus in creative writing, and the importance of remembering those who served during WWII.

The link to the interview is embedded in the picture to the right, and listed below:

This is the second time I’ve had the privilege of being on the Good Word. I’m more comfortable with written communication than with oral communication (you can’t edit what you say), but Nick does a wonderful job asking insightful questions and keeping the interview moving. You can check out more interviews on The Good Word or subscribe to the podcast on itunes.


    1. Thanks, Char, for your comment and for listening. I’m always worried I’ll say something stupid when I’m being recorded. I was relieved that nothing sounded too bad when I listened to it (or maybe the baby distracted me at just the right times and I missed the awkward moments).

    2. Babies are good distractions. I hate listening to myself on recordings. I always think..”Do I really sound like that?” Hee hee


    3. I’m usually the same way when I’m listening to myself. This time it didn’t bug me as much–not sure why. Maybe that distraction from the baby . . .
