Talking about novels with Lori Hahnel

It was a pleasure to be invited to visit the blog of my Calgary friend and writing colleague, Lori Hahnel.

Lori is the author of a collection of short fiction, Nothing Sacred,  and a novel, Love Minus Zero, and has recently finished a new novel.  In the years I’ve been working on The Boy, I’ve talked with Lori about what pulls us into a book length project and keeps us there no matter how much we resist.
