On today’s show we hear a passage from the gritty, urban fantasy novel, Magpie’s Song, by Allison Pang.

After the story, Allison and I have a great talk about how this story came together, and how Allison’s personal struggles have made the story what it is today. There’s so much more to this incredible creative process than I can describe here, so be sure you listen to the interview!
