Smart Bitches podcast interview

A little over a week ago, I had the pleasure of speaking with Sarah from the Smart Bitches, Trashy Books blog in a podcast interview.

About Those Handsprings...

So the question is, why? Why don’t I relish each and every moment of every day? Why in the world would I not just be fucking hap- hap- happy every second I’m conscious? And probably when I’m not? What in this world could be possibly bad anymore? When you’ve already been dead, I mean?

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time.
