Books mentioned in this episode:
Marolyn Krasner grew up in southern California. She wasn’t a big reader of fiction as a child, but she clearly remembers spreading the Sunday newspaper out on the living room floor on the weekends and reading it all of the way through. She watched the film “All the President’s Men” in junior high school and decided print journalism was her calling. She went on to edit her high school and college newspapers and then became a real life newspaper reporter in the mid 90s and then she promptly quit.
She began writing quirky and queer stories in her early 20s. Fast forward 20 years, three countries, one wife and two children later and Marolyn has written her debut novel called The Radicals, which will be released as an ebook and a podcast in May 2019.
Marolyn lives in New Zealand with her wife and two kids.
