    Any additional comments?

    This was a very nice interview. I thought it was well done. The author proved that she had spent a lot of time thinking about her story and how to put it together. When talking about her characters and what each of them represent, I found her depth of knowledge fascinating. During the interview, she talked about reality and how our minds determine our reality.. But she also explained that sometimes we are creating our reality and yet there are times when our reality creates us, which is the premise of her book Flight. It's interesting listening to how an author got an idea for novels, especially works that end up being iconic.Insight into literary history and science. The interview itself was well-done and seemed to have been casual. Not once did he author seem nervous. I liked the conversational style. Mostly, I just like learning how author’s get their ideas and run with it. Very easy to listen to and follow.

I want to feel good when I complete a story & am a little harsh on depressing ones. There are a few sad ones that I love but not many.
