Kam asked Edan Lepucki:

How did you get interested in writing? When did you want to make it a career?

Edan Lepucki I've been interested in writing since I could read. I've loved to read for as long as I can remember, and my desire to write is part of that. I've wanted to write as a career for almost that long, too! It was a fantasy long before I put the work in and actually, uh, wrote anything. I dabbled in poetry in high school and turned seriously toward fiction in college, where I majored in English and Creative Writing. Studying with Dan Chaon was huge for me--he was so attentive and devoted as a teacher, and I wanted to return that with hard work. Ever since then, I have been focused on writing. Publishing my novel is, without exaggeration, a life-long dream.
