I recently did an all-encompassing interview with the lovely Deb Ozarko about changing the status quo.
I must admit to being fueled by pinot noir for the interview, so I opened up a lot about some of the things that really matter to me 🙂 If you'd like to listen to the whole interview, I suggest joining me for a glass!
- How I finally stopped self-censoring, and how my fiction helps me work out what I believe
- The theme of good and evil is resonant in all my fiction, as well as aspects of my own travels and experiences
- How I want to tell a good fast-paced story to keep people reading but that I also want to tackle deeper topics that leave you thinking afterwards
- Carl Jung and the Shadow side, and how embracing it can make a person whole
Do you use the Shadow side in your creative work? I'd love to know your thoughts so please share them in the comments below.
