This week’s Oddcast presents an amazing and fascinating interview with award-winning screenwriter (Savage Grace, Joe Gould’s Secret), novelist, journalist and educator Howard A. Rodman about writing novels and screenplays, adapting novels to screenplays, and leading the WGA, not to mention the true, secret history of how a small bookshop in Paris led him to write his new novel, The Great Eastern, wherein Jules Verne’s Captain Nemo battles Melville’s Captain Ahab. Join cohosts Jon McGoran, Gregory Frost, Kelly Simmons, Keith Strunk and Merry Jones.
Our second Oddcast from the PWC includes interviews with author/photographer Sally Wiener Grotta, who speaks of how writers can secure grants; screenplay-developmental editor James Breckenridge, who tells us what he does in helping people develop their screenplays; and members of the South Jersey Writers Group (one of the largest regional writing groups we know of), who confirm the usefulness of “community” in writing…just another week of being Odd on the Oddcast.
That Terrible Mind, author Chuck Wendig, with 20 novels under his belt in just 7 years (he doesn’t sleep), joins the Oddcast crew to talk about writing thrillers, blogs, Star Wars tie-in books, games, books on writing, and more. A laugh-out-loud interview this week on the Liars Club Oddcast.
