Delightful Show with Interesting Guests

I'm not a writer, but I sure have enjoyed Paul's show as his guests share their journeys in writing which gives me a greater appreciation for this craft. AND it's a great way to learn about books that are out there as I'm always interested in discovering new reads...especially for my women's book club.

For anyone who loves reading or writing, I feel you'll enjoy this show and Paul's great conversational style!
