We all have benchmarks of success, and one of mine has always been that I would be on National Public Radio. Today, this happens! No, Maureen Sullivan has not named My Life as Laura as the MUST READ book of the year, but I will be on Montana Public Radio on The Write Question produced by Chérie Newman.
I admit I was bit nervous for my first interview. I showed up at the OU radio station (where via radio magic I could be interviewed by someone in Montana). I sat alone in this room with a giant microphone, watching these giant apocalypse clocks (red, for danger, naturally) countdown to my interview time (tick. tock. tick. tock.) and then….nothing. My technical understanding was that something went kerplat in Montana while another something went kerplooey in Ohio so I sat and listened to broadcasts about the failing economy and bombs in Pakistan until we were ready to begin. I’d been watching a great deal of Frasier lately on Netflix so I kept looking for Roz. Or for Niles to scurry in and pour me a glass of sherry.
Luckily, Chérie was all aplomb.
