Life of Fiction

Life of Fiction

It's not easy being a fiction writer -- but it's cheaper than therapy.

How do you entertain the world with your fiction? That's a question I've been asking myself since I launched WantedHero.com in 2005. These stories were for my kids, but that didn't last long. Kids share with other kids, and sometimes crazy things grow. This podcast is about the creative process, perspectives, stories, and my worldbuilding addictions. It's to show you that nothing is ever as simple or as easy as it seems, and life doesn't usually turn out like we think it will. If you’re looking for ideas, inspiration, instruction, or maybe a glance into the creative process of lying to kids for a living, this may be the podcast for you.
