A couple of years ago, I had an idea for a book that I wanted to work on. One of the first people I thought about interviewing for it was Nancy Lou. She is a character, and was most fitting to be the first interview for Character Lines.
Fortunately, I saved the entire interview and now we’re able to use it on Nancy Lou’s new website. Click the forward arrow on the player (below) to listen in.
