We have trouble believing you haven’t already heard of our guest this week, Susan Wiggs, but just in case—she’s the author of many many novels, a multiple #1 New York Times
bestseller and an overall amazing storyteller. Her current novel, The Lost and Found Bookshop
, is on sale now and her most recent bestseller, The Oysterville Sewing Circle
, is just out in paperback.
We talk crafting a story, starting from the emotional journey versus the physical plot, building a character, choosing a setting and our collective addiction to writing books, and Susan reveals that she does indeed read fiction while she’s writing fiction—and it’s a good thing, too, because her reading list is long indeed.
