In this episode we’re chatting with author Julia Fine. We talked about her new novel in episode 16 and we are so excited to have her on the show. A little about Julia: Her debut What Should Be Wild is out now from Harper Books. She earned her MFA at Columbia College Chicago, and has taught writing at Columbia College and DePaul University. She's currently living in Chicago with her family, hard at work on both her second novel and her one year-old son.
