Listen to the show:
A native of Phoenix, Paul Mosier decided at a late age that writing stories would be a convenient way to forgive himself for not being able to make a good living. This has been jeopardized by the acquisition of his fourth novel by HarperCollins as part of a two book deal. The middle-grade "Train I Ride" will appear everywhere on January 10, 2017, and an even more depressing novel will come a year after that. Prior to this development, Paul was perfectly content writing novels which featured chimps, nervous tics, unhealthy behaviors, psychological inadequacies, and schmaltzy endings. He is married to a mermaid and has two daughters who are almost too charming to be real. He owes it all to the Central Phoenix Writer's Workshop.
