Episode 164. A citizen of two worlds. Juggling writing and life with Sam Mills and Michael J. Harvey

The American writers Joyce Carol Oates famously said:  “The biggest obstacle for writers is distraction from other people."   And it’s substantially true.

To help us explore this issue, and to offer practical steps to help us all with this tight rope act, I am joined by two writers, Sam Mills and Michael J Harvey. Sam Mills studied English Language and Literature at Oxford University, and worked as a journalist and publicist before giving it all up to write full time.

Harvey is a fantasy novelist with degrees in History from the Universities of Leicester and Cambridge. He is a blogger, writer and traveller, and also a husband and father to two young children. Both of my guests have had to learn to create and manage time for their writing, ...
