15 minutes

Earlier this week an email landed in my inbox from Pam Fessler at NPR. A few days later I'm sitting down for an interview. A proper interview that requires a stringer to record me, sound checks, photos taken, the whole shebang. It was very exciting and just a little bit nerve-wracking :)

Why the hell would NPR want to interview me? Good question. Luck of the Google search :) NPR has a series of features called In Character where they explore "indelible American characters" in-depth. One character they will be exploring is Jack Bauer. Woohoo! One Google search later and Pam found my 24 fansite, She emailed, asked if she could chat with me, I said, "Let me think about it." Just kidding, I actually said, "..." and blinked a lot before my brain started working again and I said, "Umm, yes please :)"

So sometime in March, I'll be babbling like a squeeing fangirl about the virtues of Jack Bauer :) And the best part of the whole experience for me is getting a tiny taste of what it feels like to be the interviewee. It was way cool. Many thanks to Pam Fessler for the opportunity and to Brett Erickson for coming down to record it all. I had fun once I got over the nerves.

So now when I publish my book and head off to do book tours, I'll be totally prepared :D
