This episode I talk with one of my inspirations, Christopher Moore, author of the just released Shakespeare for Squirrels.  We also get into his 17 books over his 30 year writing career, releasing a book during quarantine, the lonely job of writing, the pivoting of publishers, and how one of his series set the course for my own Simon Canderous universe of books.
