Bryan the Writer/Erin Mackey

I am super excited about this time of year. I have to tell you that the holidays are easily my favorite time of the year. Ever since I was a kid I loved all of it. The smells, the sights, my grandparents spoiling us kids to death. It was a great time.

I know what you are going to say and you would be right, 2020 is not that kind of year, but I say bully to you and am going to try and get back some of that holiday spirit with holiday themed shows until the end of the year because … well I can. It is my podcast. 

And, since it is my podcast I can do cool things like bring in my next guest who has graciously offered to join me today. So, grab yourself a cup of hot cocoa with a peppermint stick in it and lets welcome my next guest, Erin Mackey.

Questions we are going to dive into in this episode:

How did you get into writing? What was your motivation?

What is the magic sauce which keeps kids, and sometimes parents, into what you write?

I know I said this is holiday themed, but there are plenty of great ghoulish stories which surround the whole idea of the holidays. So, hear me out. Being a horror writer, I love these kinds of works. What was the driving force behind that project?

What were your favorite holiday stories growing up? 

What is your favorite thing about writing? What is your greatest reward?

Lets talk traditions.
