Interviews

& Other Press

Profile from Richmond Magazine marking my 2009 Theresa Pollak award (and mysteriously changing the color of my hair as I swim in Richmond's James River)

From Style Magazine

On the "And the West Is History" panel at San Jose's Book Group Expo, 2006

Here are links to some interviews and the like that I've done ... with writing advice, info about my books, and some general celebrations of literature and art.

"Up Front" from the New York Times Book Review, a wee profile featuring my views on artistic life and potential mediocrity,  after reviewing a novel by Stacey D'Erasmo

"Finishing First: Kingdom of Little Wounds," from the Richmond Times-Dispatch: on winning a silver medal in the Printz Award series, 2013

Also from the Richmond Times-Dispatch: on being one of two Richmond writers winning national awards for Young Adult literature, 2014

Urge Magazine, on history's quirks and how I wrote Mirabilis and Breath and Bones (the interview starts on page 47)

"Still the Water Creeps In," an interview with RVA online magazine (the title refers to a persistent and maddening leak in the northwest corner of my 1920 house, for which I could never quite discover the cause--just as one has a hard time pinpointing where inspiration lies)

Richmond Magazine, in which I am called a sorceress as I receive a Theresa Pollak award for contributing to the arts in Richmond (see left)

Truth Teller Spotlight Interview with Broad Street Magazine--on truth and how to put it into all kind of writing

Fredericksburg Literary and Arts Review, an interview about editing Broad Street Magazine

"And the West is History," a video panel interview  from the San Jose Book Group Expo, in which I discuss Breath and Bones and the legendary Wild West days

"Richmond's Newest Novels," from Style Magazine--on the publication of Breath and Bones in 2005

"Camp Culture," in which Richmond 

Magazine considers me an expert on folklore and summer camp, particularly the tales told around a bonfire

Reviews of my various books can be found on the books' pages themselves, under the "Books" drop-down menu (appropriately).
