Carma Spence runs a very cool blog and site called The Genre Traveler (www.thegenretraveler.com) where, among other things, she posts podcasts with writers who till the fields of genre of all sorts. She looked me up and the result is a wide-ranging conversation about fear in literature, the excitement of initial ideas, and the inadequacy of “good writing” as the distinction between so-called genre and literary fiction.
Carma did some expert editing, too, as I sound more coherent than I recall. And we must have done the interview after my afternoon coffee: I can hear the caffeine in my voice.

I will have to check this out as I enjoy hearing people all hopped up on coffee. In the meantime, however, I think I have made a terrible mistake. I recommended The Guardians to a fourteen year old boy. Is he too young? Will he be traumatized? ( I was slightly traumatized) Will his parents hate me? Should I warn his mom before he gets the book?!
