Learning To Write Fiction From Non-Fiction.

One of the things about my day job I love is that I get to meet so many fascinating people. I’m the host of a talk show called Sundial on WLRN. Today I spoke with author and reporter Tristram Korten about his new book Into the Storm.

It’s the true story of the maritime tragedy of the El Faro and of a second ship that sank that night during Hurricane Joaquin. His book got me thinking about writing fascinating and robust dialogue.

It also got me rethinking how I lay out scenes, especially moving from one location to another.
