INTERVIEW:  TONY TADARO

Over the course of this blog I have mentioned GLAWS, the Greater Los Angeles Writer’s Society, of which I am a member.  GLAWS is a great organization of peers helping peers and professionals mentoring aspiring writers.  I am in one of their screenwriting critique groups which meets at Los Angeles Valley College.  They have critique groups for virtually every kind of writing.  They also have monthly Special Events which are free to the public, usually held Saturdays at the Palms-Rancho Park Library in Los Angeles.  And they have three yearly Writer’s Conferences.  You can check that all out at www.glaws.org

At last year’s Loscon, I caught up with the president of GLAWS, Tony N. Tadaro, after one of the various writing panels held at the convention.  I interviewed him for our radio show, The Corsair’s Closet, on Krypton Radio, and asked him what GLAWS is and how it can help aspiring writers.  Below is the link to that episode of The Corsair’s Closet.  The interview starts about a quarter of the way in.  The rest of the show was a review of Loscon.

Interview: Cherie Priest

As I said in my last post, Gaslight Gathering 4: A Martian Holliday, was my first steampunk convention. The Writer Guest of Honor was Cherie Priest, the author of the Boneshaker series. I interviewed her for our show on Krypton Radio, The Corsair’s Closet. You can listen to it on the link down below. The interview starts about five minutes in, or you can listen to the whole show. Enjoy!

For those of you who are not familiar with the show, my wife Kris is Time Siren, our friend Liz Carlie is Mad Woman with a Box (Mad Woman for short) and I’m the ALOF (Adult Fan of Lego) Husband.
