Welcome to Your Best Writing Life, I’m your host, Linda Goldfarb, and I’m so glad you’re listening in, during this episode, we examine – Part Two in the Hero’s Journey for Writers – with Further Defining Your Hero’s Journey. 

My industry expert is A.E. Jackson! Andrew writes uncanny speculative fiction for your enjoyment. He believes there are malevolent forces, just below the surface, tugging us all down. He knows another force, more benevolent than we deserve, works to keep us buoyant. He reads Ray Bradbury, Shirley Jackson, Roald Dahl, Stephen King, Paulo Coelho, Richard Matheson, H.P. Lovecraft, and Richard Bach. He lives in Delaware and is married with two children.
