MPR Interview

Last week I spent a pleasant half hour talking with Minnesota Public Radio's Euan Kerr.
Among other topics, we discussed where I got the idea to write How to Steal a Car, the differences between the reasons adults and teens read, and my (very) brief history as a car thief. We also talked about the movie adaptation of Godless, and writing from the perspective of a teenage girl.
You can listen to the interview on the MPR website here.
