In this episode, we welcome Rachael Herron, author of the
Cypress Hollow series, several mainstream fiction books and a
non-fiction collection of memoirs. Rachael and I met years ago when
we were both involved in the knit-bloggers ring, and recently
reconnected at a local guild meeting. On the morning we were
recording it was unusually windy and we had even had some rain.
You've heard Gayle and I talk about the California drought, so yay,
rain! But the wind? Not so much. Our internet conferencing software
kept dropping our conference call. We don't really know what caused
it to be dropped, but we vented our frustration on the wind. So our
apologies for the few places were the chat is choppy and for the
general lower than usual audio quality. That was a surprise and we
hope you will stick with us and listen to our chat with Rachael.
Thank-you Rachael for being patient and working with us that
