It’s episode 115 with Bill Beverly, author of the multi-award winning novel ‘Dodgers’. He talks about how he found his way to what became a highly successful novel by way of short stories and a failed screenplay attempt as well as giving an insight into his writing process.

Bill was born and grew up in Kalamazoo, Michigan. He studied literature and writing at Oberlin College, including time in London studying theatre and the Industrial Revolution. His research on criminal fugitives and the stories surrounding them became the book On the Lam: Narratives of Flight in J. Edgar Hoover’s America. He now teaches American literature and writing at Trinity University in Washington D.C. and his multi-award winning debut novel, Dodgers is out right now.

You can follow Bill on Twitter @BillBeverly and find more info on his website here.

Here’s the short documentary I mentioned in the intro – Life Lessons of an Artist, which is free to view on YouTube.
