Dealing with the press, in all its various flavors, can be a little nerve-racking. I'm a writer, not a talker. (Okay, my husband might disagree with that, but you can't go by him. He hardly talks at all.) Online blog interviews don't really count. Those are usually written interviews. I get the questions, and I write--and rewrite and revise--my answers.
But a few months ago, a real live freelance journalist came to my house to interview me. I figured I was relatively safe--she was writing an article for my alumni magazine, so chances were good she wouldn't include any of the more inane things I might say.
It was fun; I think we must have spent two or three hours chatting. Click here if you want to read what she wrote.
