Today Paul Cooley and Terry Mixon turn the tables on me, as they interview me for a live episode of The Dead Robots’ Society Podcast. We discuss my influences as a writer, why Neil Gaiman’s faeries feel different from Jim Butcher’s, writing stories with social commentary, and a bunch of other cool stuff. Enjoy!
