I promise I had a plan, but at one point Cameron started telling me all the things he’s not (tall, fat, smart, black, jewish, or gay), and I knew I was toast.

SUBSCRIBE: iTunes – RSS Lisa Durkin (@LisaSDurkin) settled into the nest to talk about her novel, The Gentlewoman. We talked about her time in Ed Fitzgerald’s Cuyahoga County Administration, and how that prompted the lead character, Rory Morgan, to pop into Lisa’s head.
