003 - Author and Feminist Tammy Kaehler
Tammy Kaehler joins the show to discuss the process of becoming a published author, covering the inspiration to do it, resources that helped her get started, and the joys of trying to get published.
We then discuss the research that was required to write authentic racing scenes for her murder mysteries, which take place in the world of ALMS and, more recently, Indy Car racing. Currently there are 5 novels staring Kate Reilly, who drives the racecar and solves the mysteries.
Feminism is a part of Tammy's identity, so we go into a discussion about what that means to her in today's world and how it impacts her writing. A lot of her philosophy boils down to encouraging girls to follow their interests and doing what's right for you.
We wrap up with some advice from Tammy, both for aspiring writers and for life in general.
Thanks for listening.
