My Interview on City Corner


Click here to go to my interview on STL TV

For the fourth time, Steve Potter of KWMU  and the city’s cable access and internet station STL TV interviewed me Wednesday about The Colorful Characters of St. Louis. He asked some great questions about various characters in the book and what makes a character colorful. In the past, he interviewed me about my three previous books when each of them came out.
