A Writer Finds Her Spoken Voice

I prefer email to phone, letters to long visits. My introvert soul is ten parts hermit. Best days are days when there is no one on my calendar. If too many days go by without a retreat into solitude, I get overwhelmed, feel thrown out of myself.

However, there are more kind and hermit-forgiving friends in my life than I deserve. People who, having read my memoir, ask me to speak – individually over tea, to their book clubs, and most recently in a radio interview with host Kathy Partridge on KGNU. (Boulder/Denver – 88.5 FM/1390 and Fort Collins – 98.7 FM).

The show airs tomorrow morning, Friday, August 23. The recorded interview will play between 8:30 and 9:00 a.m. Knowing that many … possibly most people I know will be otherwise engaged – with work or life or sleep, it has been suggested that I upload the audio file to my website. With patient and generous help from my current writing partner, Christine Christman of GoodWord Inc., this has been accomplished. So, if you are interested in hearing the interview on your own time, it is now available on my website and via my Facebook page.

If, on the other hand, you would like to ask me yet another question or share a comment, from 9:00 to 9:30 a.m., Kathy will open the lines and take live calls (303-442-4242). With the magic of technology, I will also be connected (sitting at home in my pajamas and sipping tea) and will be honored to talk with you.

My thanks and gratitude for your continued support.

Kindly yours, joan

  1. You are so funny. We need Oprah to call in! That would take you out of your pjs!!! Sleep well tonight. Love you.



  2. Joan, while I know you were scared to death of this interview, you nailed it! You sounded so confident and natural that I felt like I was sitting down talking to you in my living room. Congratulations! Lots of love!
