What Inspires Writers? Interview at After-Ellen.com

Karin Kallmaker Events and Appearances

AfterEllen.com has a two-part feature with twelve writers, including yours truly. Contributing writer LeeAnn Kriegh asked Lillian Faderman, Nancy Garden, Sarah Waters, Kelley Eskridge, Sammin Sarif, Val McDermid, Charlotte Mendelson, Ariel Shrag, Amy Bloom, Joan Larkin, Rebecca Walker and me what inspires us about what we write.

Since the writers represent everything from short story to comic book to international to genre writing, the answers are correspondingly diverse — and interesting! I hope you’ll take time to read it!
