In Which I Am Interviewed

Today I'm cross-posting an interview I did with Anne Bryant Westrick, author of Brotherhood, for her blog.

When Brotherhood was in the works, Anne asked me for a blurb. When I found out that a white woman from Richmond, heart of the Old South, had written her debut novel about the start of the Klu Klux Klan, I admit that my first reaction was, oh hell no. Not puttin' my name on that But I vastly underestimated the book, as I soon learned--it's truthful, balanced, nuanced, everything historical fiction should be. I've been proud to count Anne a friend ever since, and I was very pleased to be on her blog, which, for the record, is much more visually appealing than mine.

Thanks, Anne!
