Engaging, interesting and fun!

Shelagh has a warm, comfortable interviewing process and style. She brings out elements of the author's work, and enables the listener to feel part of the conversation.
The teasers to encourage authors to try various writing approaches are inspiring, too.
Whether you are an established or budding author, or a happy reader, you may find this potcast to be a great treat! ---SDx

Write the Book

I love listening to this Podcast! Each episode, I feel as though I am witness to an intimate conversation between two thoughtful writers who are enjoying a discussion about writing and reading.
This is worth a listen even if the featured author is not well known to you. It is really interesting and thought provoking.

Great interviews

Shelagh is a great interviewer who allows her subjects ample time answer her questions and give the listener insight into their process for, well, writing the book. This is a great podcast to listen to when your brain needs a little culture in your life.
