Iowan Kristine Keil interviews authors and asks the hard questions like "What's your tie to Iowa?" and "How do you choose to procrastinate?" If you confuse Iowa, Idaho, and Ohio, we won't hold that against you. Tune in, and you'll soon learn the corn and pig state turns out excellent literary fiction and houses that writing university. No big deal, but we are home of "The Music Man," "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" and the very first Rice Krispie Treat. If you're an aspiring author or have 10 published books under your belt, this podcast is for you. We'll talk with anyone and everyone on this path we call writing and cover all the things: traditional publishing, self-publishing, outlining, writing groups, workshops, plotting, character development, structure, pantser, plantser, writing community, marketing, dialogue, writing resources, editing, rewriting, desperation, pulling your hair out, burning your work, etc. We've all been there. So join us!
