Welcome back for Episode 32 of Speculate! The Podcast for Writers, Readers and Fans. In this episode we interview mountain climber, figure skater and (of course) fantasy author Courtney Schafer, who somehow finds time between climbing sheer rock faces, landing triple jumps, working a day job in electrical engineering and raising a son to write epic fantasy–including her debut from Night Shade Books, The Whitefire Crossing. We cover at least some of these bases during this interview, and even get a chance to talk about The Night Bazaar, a group blog conceived of and directed by Courtney (with website designed by Brad). If you like what you hear, make sure you check back next week for our 2011 Year in Review show. Until then, thanks as always for listening to the show, and please continue to spread the word!
