The Interruption With Kristi Charish
Hi everyone! Welcome back to The Interruption, a 49th Shelf–Books on the Radio collaboration in which I interview Canadian writers about the surprising things that inform, inspire, and even interrupt their creative process.
Today I speak with author Kristi Charish about leaving a career in science for a life in writing and how she finds inspiration in RPG-style video games.
Kristi is an author, a scientist, and an RPG enthusiast who possesses a PhD in Zoology from the University of British Columbia. She is also the author of a new book called Owl and the Japanese Circus, out this year from Simon and Schuster Canada. It’s an urban fantasy about an ex-archaeology grad student turned international antiquities thief. Available in paperback wherever fine books are sold.
You can find out more about Kristi and her work online at www.kristicharish.com/.
The Interruption always features two podcast selections for your listening enjoyment: the first podcast features my conversation with Kristi. The second podcast features a reading from the early part of Owl and the Japanese Circus.
Thank you for listening.
