Episode 2 --- Tananarive Due

I first met Tananarive Due when I was a student in the MFA program at Antioch University Los Angeles. She was one of my mentors during my last semester. I found her to be a careful editor and adept at getting to what your writing needed to make it really sing. It was such a pleasure to meet up with her, again, at this year's Miami Book Fair.

Tananarive is a master of speculative fiction. She classifies her work as supernatural suspense and says her latest book, Ghost Summer, combines science fiction and horror.

Tananarive has received an American Book Award, an NAACP Image Award and the Carl Brandon Kindred Award. She holds a BS in journalism from Northwestern University and an MA in English literature from the University of Leeds, England.

In this week's ReadMore podcast, we talk about Ghost Summer, the short story collection she published this year. We also discuss how she found her voice as a writer, her thoughts on teaching and what, she says, horror truly is.

To win a copy of Ghost Summer, listen to the podcast, follow us on Twitter @ReadMorePodcast and send us a tweet telling us which one of her books Tananarive says she enjoys re-reading.
