So it's interesting little network of people found out about him through a robert j sawyer who was a pretty good recommendation. So yeah i saw that myself. And i remember thinking. Yeah that's that's Of course robertson of course came alleged in the sideline universal well We're going to start the way that i always start. Which is by taking you back into the mists of time to find out well first of all where you were born and grew up and all that sort of thing but especially how you became interested in presumably you started as a reader we almost all do and then eventually started writing your own story. So how did that work from you where you from. And and how did you get interested in the world of words law. It's it's The funny thing is i don't think writer. Any writers have exact same pathway.

It should be out this fall in e book and print and available everywhere so Keep an eye on. That just wanted the thing. I want to mention before we get to the interview with jane. Ulan i have traditionally done a full transcript on these podcasts and i will still have a full transcript for this one. But it's going to be delayed a little bit and actually you thinking i'm going to have to phase out the full transcripts. I like them but they are an enormous amount of work. Even though i use an automated transcription service and i don't see from my website. Statistic set a lot of people are spending a lot of time reading those transcripts. So i think. I'm going to back off on the transcripts and focus on getting the Recordings out By themselves and and perhaps adding transcripts later. On as i have time so just something that might change if you're used to seeing a full transcript with every episode I think in order to keep the podcast going. And because i have so many other demands on my time i may back off from that but it won't change the the interviews themselves. I hope they're still entertaining and informative as this will be and one more thing before i start the interview with john lennon The world shapers. Podcast is part of the scotsman. Podcast network all right. Let's get onto this episode's guest. Genuine.
