D.C. Literature Examiner Goodies

I know we've all be busy with the holidays and reading our new books.

I've been busily interview poets and authors on D.C. Literature Examiner again.  You knew I couldn't resist.

Please check out my latest interview with Poet and Musician John Amen!  We talk about his writing habits, his thoughts on how music and poetry are similar, and what poets he recommends.  Check out the interview here and here.

One of his books, More of Me Disappears, made my 2009 top poetry books list.

I've also had the pleasure of talking about John Shors', author of Dragon House, charity efforts in providing books to street children in Vietnam.  If you'd like to see how well his project has gone or how his book sales are connected to the charity, please go here.

Finally, I had the pleasure of interviewing Into the Beautiful North author Luis Alberto Urrea.  We discuss how movies influenced him, particularly with this novel, his writing, his playlists, and more.  Don't forget his recommended reading.  Check out the interview here and here.

Urrea's book made my best of audiobooks for 2009!

I hope you'll be checking these interviews out in your down time.

Yay. I must read your interview with Luis Alberto Urrea. I've heard him talk at a book signing a couple of years ago and just really enjoyed his observations on writing, etc. I have his latest book Into the Beautiful North waiting for me!
