C.L. Pauwels (aka, my friend Cyndi) and I chat about her newest novel, "Unwelcome Ties," what it's like to write a "prequel," in this case a novel that includes a character who is the main character in novels C.L. has already published ("Forty and Out" and "Burned Bridges"), staying connected and motivated as a writer in the best of times and the pandemic of times.
I first met C.L. as one of her mentors as she worked on her master's thesis--a very early version of what has grown and developed into "Unwelcome Ties," a thriller set in Toledo. Then, through the Antioch Writers' Workshop, we became colleagues and friends.
This is one of the biggest joys of the creative life--meeting other creators along the way and being part of their journey!
