- whether you have to be good looking to make it in music;
- how he got a deal to write his humorous romance, HEARTS RACING;
- the funniest things about Atlanta;
- David Sedaris in Costco;
- the lowest point in his Iron Man training;
- what it’s like “suffering from high self esteem.”
Plus, on “Today in Writing”–Rumi’s birthday.
