Episode 36: A Time to Thrill – Conversation with Aime Austin – featuring Blair Babylon

USA Today bestselling author Blair BabylonOMG this episode is epic! This month I have a super interesting conversation with USA Today bestselling author Blair Babylon. Blair is another author I haven’t seen in some time (damned COVID). Also, admittedly I tried not to talk to her too much about the pandemic as she’s an expert Ph.D. in microbiology and virology. I was too afraid that the truth of what was happening in 2020. It was all too was heavy.

On the other hand, Blair is one of a few people I know who completed the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. In the writing community that MFA is like sprinkling magical fairy dust of legitimate literary writership on someone. Let’s chat. I have *so* many questions!
