My interview with author Karen Abbott

Posted by on Mar 21, 2011 in Authors, Books, seattle, Writing | No Comments

I’d briefly met Karen a few years ago in Asheville, NC, during her tour for her first book, Sin in the Second City. She visited Seattle last month to talk at Elliott Bay Book Co. about her new book, American Rose, a biography of Seattle-born Gypsy Rose Lee.

We talked about writing, her naughty parrots, Freedom, and the theme song from Rocky.
