Interview with Anne Westrick

Anne Westrick joins me in this episode of Working Title podcast. We talk about developing emotional connections to characters, avenues for researching subject matter, and crafting a winning query letter.

Her debut novel, Brotherhood, takes place in Reconstruction-era Richmond, Va., where a boy struggles to protect a friend from the Ku Klux Klan he recently joined.

Anne recalls her willingness to tear down the structure of her novel in order to build a better one, and delving into her long family history to discover details that make her characters authentic and compelling.

A special treat: Anne reads an excerpt from her novel.

Listen to the entire conversation here:
