“For me it was a very positive experience [working with James Frey]. I don’t regret it – but that being said literary fiction has always been my passion and I’m happy to move on and write my own books.” [9:00]
“MFA programs are really great for people who lack the discipline to sit down and write everyday – I’ve never had that problem. I write every day regardless.” [12:30]
