Episode No. 39: G.M. Dyrek, Author


If you are checking this out via iPad or other device and cannot see the audio player, click here to listen — or just go ahead and subscribe. You know you want to.

This is an interview with G.M. Dyrek, a middle school librarian who is also a published author in the emergent medieval murder mystery genre. (You can find her work on Amazon here.)

I got the chance to speak with Dyrek a few weeks back, but the interview took a different form than most — I had sent her the questions beforehand, and we kind of went off those more than we typically do. As a result, it sounds a bit scripted. It’s not — and it’s still interesting. In the first 45 seconds or so, you’ll learn about dozens of jobs she’s held during her life.

If you’re interested in one of her main characters, Hiledgard of Bingen, you can find more information here.

Dyrek does a cool thing with her writings: book trailers, as opposed to, you know, book jacket praise or something. Here’s an example:

Here’s Dyrek on The Balancing Act, a popular morning show on the Lifetime Network:

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
