Spent a glorious week at the Pelee Island Book House. You may recall (assuming you follow the show here, I guess, or know me maybe?) that I spent a week there last spring and did workshops with Margaret Atwood. This time around it was a different kind of jam. There was no workshop, so it was technically a “residency” not a retreat. It was myself, two other writers, and Book House owner Dawn Kresan. I did a month’s worth of writing in a week, went for bike rides, drank some wine and basically loved every minute of note living in a basement from 9 to 5. Hope to have Dawn on the show soon to talk about how you writers can learn more.
Today’s guest is bestselling author Paula McLain. Love and Ruin is sort of, but not really, a companion piece to her hugely successful The Paris Wife. She was wonderful to talk to and I hope you enjoy our conversation!
