Our latest episode of The BookPeople Podcast features Paul Yoon’s chat with fellow author (and lovely wife) Laura van den Berg. Paul and Laura are currently visiting faculty members at the Michener Center for Writers, and they’re introduced by best selling novelist and Michener Center Director, Bret Anthony Johnston. All of this talent gathered together to celebrate the release of Paul’s newest novel: Run Me to Earth.
Paul and Laura talk about their writing process, discussing how they begin their projects, and how an idea can become a story. Paul shares the paintings that inspired the novel, how his faith was tested, and how he came out the other side.
