Author, Can I Ask You?

Joni B. Cole

Hi there from Joni B. Cole, author of "Good Naked: Reflections on How to Write More, Write Better, and Be Happier." This podcast gives me the chance to ask notable authors about what they write, how they write, and why they write. Plus, I throw in the odd question or two to help us get to know each author a little bit better as a person. Eavesdrop along with a new episode every Thursday.
