Full confession: it took me several months to get my nerve up to contact the author of one of my favorite music blogs, The Cross-Eyed Pianist, and ask her if she'd be willing to read and review my novel, The Waco Variations. Pianist, writer, concert reviewer, blogger, and music lover Frances Wilson's blog is followed by over 8500 people and as such is one of the top-rated classical music sites in the world. Well, Wilson couldn't have been more gracious. Thanks to my other favorite piano blog, Piano Addict, she'd already heard of my book and was eager to read it.
Wilson's "Meet the Artist" interview series is a popular element of The Cross-Eyed Pianist. As my resume is much more less illustrious than many of the pianists she features, I was surprised and thrilled when she asked me to be part of this series. Her questions and my answers can be found here:
And while you're on her site, peruse her writing, read other interviews, and (especially if you're a pianist), follow the blog. I have for several years; it never fails to inform and inspire.
