Episode 25–Reporter and Author Julia Park Tracey

On Episode 25 of the WRITER 2.0 Podcast, I spoke with poet, reporter, and novelist Julia Park Tracey.

In a wide ranging discussion, we touched on:

  • writing lyrics for an 80s metal band;
  • whether she really got heckled in French at a book reading at a Mexican restaurant;
  • what it was like working with self-publishing giant, iUniverse;
  • her new novel, Veronika Layne Gets the Scoop;
  • the stipend she gets for being the poet laureate of Alameda, CA (spoiler alert: it’s $0);
  • wardrobe malfunctions at readings;
  • the decision that sparked her career as a writer.

Plus, on Today in Writing: After 50 years, a new novel from Harper Lee. And, in a special “Today in NOT Writing” segment, sci-fi/fantasy author Raven Oak shares a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.
