I was delighted to talk to Michigan native Karen Dybis in Corp! Magazine about my Detroit metro connection. We also discussed why I write, my advice to other writers, and how my book and the first stop on my book tour were part of a long-awaited and complicated homecoming. See the full profile here.
The wonderful critically acclaimed, best-selling novelist Caroline Leavitt interviewed me on her blog. We talked about the “why now” moment that spurred me to write my story, my favorite memoirs about other larger-than-life fathers, and the value of keeping some secrets secret. For the full interview, click here.
I hope to see many local friends at the New Dominion Bookshop in Charlottesville. It’s a lovely space on the Downtown Mall. 6 PM. Join me for a reading, Q&A, and snacks!
